Grants of up to $6,000.00 and down payment assistance up to $10,681.00 are currently available for government employees, through the Public Servant Next Door Program.  People often ask if these housing grants are only for Federal employees.  While all Federal employees are eligible, this grant is also available to every state, county, and city employee, in all fifty states and DC.

In addition to the grant  and down payment assistance, government workers may be eligible for special government employee mortgage programs, first time home buyer programs and other incentives.

The Public Servant Next Door Program is administered nationally by
Teacher Next Door, the largest National Home Buying Program in the US.   A Program Specialist will be able to walk you through the entire process, from loan approval, through purchase and closing.   They can also explain which loan program may work best for you, whether it is a government backed loan, such as FHA or VA, or a conventional loan program.  A credit check is not required to complete the pre-application and speak to a Program Specialist.

Amazing Experience!

"Working with Samantha was such an amazing Experience!  As a first-time home buyer, saying I was a bit lost was an understatement.  Sam was extremely clear, so I knew exactly what to expect before anything happened.  She made sure I felt comfortable at every point.  Her communication skills were top-notch throughout the entire process.  I could not be happier with my choice.  Samantha killed it!"

Grants, Down Payment Assistance and Other Programs

One of the frequently asked questions we receive is, "Do I qualify?"  The Teacher Next Door Program was designed to increase home ownership among teachers, support community development and increase access to affordable housing, free from discrimination.  It was also designed to be much more inclusive and impose far fewer restrictions, than HUD's Good Neighbor Next Door Program. (Which only includes classroom teachers, police, fireman and EMT's.)   

Teacher Next Door currently has grants and down payment assistance available for ALL school employees.  The above list is just an example of those who qualify.  You may purchase ANY home on the market through Teacher Next Door, not just HUD homes.

In order to see how much you qualify for, simply click apply now and complete the short pre-application.  Your personal financial information is not collected on the pre-app and there is no credit check.

Teacher Next Door is also the administrator of several other programs, including Nurse Next Door.  For a full list of programs available, CLICK HERE.
