Florida Hometown Heroes Program

Hometown Heroes

The Florida Hometown Heroes Housing program makes homeownership affordable for eligible frontline community workers by providing down payment and closing cost assistance to income-qualified homebuyers so you can purchase a primary residence in the community in which you work and serve. Eligible borrowers can receive up to 5% of their total loan amount (maximum of $25,000) in the form of a 0%, non-amortizing, 30-year deferred second mortgage.
