Housing grants are currently available for nurses and other medical professionals through the Nurse Next Door Program. Nurse Next Door is administered by the National Home Buying Program, Teacher Next Door.
Through Nurse Next Door / Teacher Next Door, nurses and medical staff are eligible for closing cost assistance grants ranging from$1,000.00 to $6,000.00. In addition to the closing cost grant, program participants may also be eligible for one of several different down payment assistance grants offered by various agencies.
For example, Teresa Gilkey, a nurse from Tucson, Arizona used Nurse Next Door to receive a total of $14,709.00 in grant funds for closing cost and down payment assistance, with the Down payment portion funded by the “Home Plus” program and arranged by Teacher Next Door’s preferred mortgage lender.
Along with the Teacher Next Door / Nurse Next Door Grants and Home Plus, we also work with many other grant programs from coast to coast. Some of the grant programs may include Arizona Home in Five, Chenoa, SHIP and many others.
Because Teacher Next Door / Nurse Next Door program in not a government agency, you may purchase any home on the market, not just HUD homes or homes in certain neighborhoods. The many different government grant programs we work with, may have certain income and other restrictions and vary in different states.
