Maybe you are a low-income, first-time buyer, or because of credit history cannot get a mortgage. There are billions of dollars in housing grants being offered to renters and buyers. You can receive government grant money to pay rent, make a down payment or for home renovations. Just because the bank thought you were a poor credit risk, does not mean that all the doors have closed. In fact, so far in 2009 $11.5 Billion has been given away in federal grant money for low income housing programs alone.
Many home renovations can also be subsidized by a housing grant. Right now, the government is offering an unlimited amount of money for housing grants dedicated to heating and cooling repairs in your home. Perhaps your furnace has seen better days and it is not heating your house throughout the winter like it should. You could qualify for a tax-free housing grant that will provide you with the money to replace that furnace for a more energy-efficient, dependable one.
There are also block grants available for weatherization and low-cost energy related home repairs. Block grants are large sums of money granted by the federal government with very few provisions or restrictions. This means that almost everyone can and will qualify! Perhaps your house is in dire need of re-shingling to be able to withstand those strong winds or frequent tornadoes that pass through your area. Well now you can use a housing grant to pay for those essential weatherization renovations to your home.
While not everyone will qualify for a housing grant, until you apply, you will never know how much money is waiting for you. And what better time to apply for a housing grant than now? The real estate market has been steadily falling and that means more economical housing available; and with the help of a grant you can achieve low interest home loans.
