Governor DeSantis Announces Amazing Changes to the Hometown Heroes Program

It's time to take advantage of the incredible opportunity provided by the Hometown Heroes housing assistance program!

The “Live Local Act” passed during the 2023 session of the Florida Legislature made some changes to the state’s Hometown Hero Program, including an expansion of eligibility requirements and the maximum loan amount offered.

The Hometown Hero Program provides down payment and closing cost assistance to first-time, income-qualified homebuyers for purchasing a primary residence in the community where they work and serve. The Florida Hometown Heroes Loan Program also offers a lower first mortgage interest rate and additional special benefits to those who have served and continue to serve their country.

This program has already awarded over $50 million in down payment and closing cost assistance to Florida's hometown heroes, helping nearly 3,500 individuals purchase their first homes in the communities they serve. Now, it's your turn to benefit from this remarkable initiative.

Imagine owning your own home, a place where you can build a future for yourself and your loved ones. The Hometown Heroes program is designed to support you in achieving that dream. Whether you're working tirelessly to keep our communities safe, educating the next generation, or providing vital healthcare services, you deserve our thanks and support.

By participating in the Hometown Heroes program, you can receive up to 5% of your first mortgage loan amount (up to a maximum of $35,000) in down payment and closing cost assistance. This assistance comes in the form of a 0 percent, non-amortizing, 30-year deferred second mortgage. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to make homeownership a reality!

To qualify for the program, simply connect with one of our team members. Ensure you have a minimum credit score of 640 and meet the income threshold for your county. With these requirements met, you'll be well on your way to securing the support you need to purchase your first home.

Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Legislature have shown their dedication to housing efforts by allocating $100 million in the Freedom First Budget for the Hometown Heroes Housing Program. They understand the value and importance of providing a helping hand to those who have dedicated their lives to serving their communities.

Don't hesitate any longer—seize this opportunity and take the first step toward homeownership through the Hometown Heroes program. Your hard work and commitment deserve to be rewarded.
