NRRC down payment assistance programs for homebuyers in the news!

NORTHSIDE

Some programs are specific to certain neighborhoods, such as low-income areas with high vacancy and foreclosure rates. The Northside Residents Redevelopment Council offers up to $5,000 in down-payment assistance for homebuyers in the Near North and Willard Hay neighborhoods of Minneapolis. There’s no income limit, and no monthly payments are required on the “forgivable loan,” which does not have to be paid back at all if the homeowner occupies the house for at least seven years.
