The Virginia Housing Development Authority’s Community Heroes Grant is helping teachers, police officers and firefighters with the downpayment and closing costs to purchase homes.
“Educators and first responders do so much to improve our lives, yet often cannot afford to buy homes in the communities in which they serve,” said VHDA Executive Director Susan Dewey. “We are very proud to support these community heroes by providing these grants – which do not have to be repaid – to help them purchase affordable homes.”
The program will provide 125 grants of $8,000 each that are available to eligible borrowers.
