Teacher Next Door and Next Door Program Grant Amounts for 2022 -
With home prices rising, and in keeping with increased Federal loan limits, ($420,000 FHA, $647,200 Conventional) Teacher Next Door has announced that grant amounts have increased for 2022. This applies to all of the Next Door Programs, including Teacher Next Door, Nurse Next Door, Officer Next Door, Firefighter Next Door, Public Servant Next Door and Soldier Next Door.
In most states, for example, grant amounts have risen from $4,170.00 to $6,472.00. In higher priced states, such as California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Texas, Utah and Washington, grant amounts have been increased to $8,000.00. Grant amounts may vary based upon where the home is located, the buyer’s individual credit, income, and other factors. Additionally, buyers may be eligible for down payment assistance up to $10,681.00.
Available in all fifty states and DC, Teacher Next Door is the largest national home buying program in the United States, with access over thirty-five different grant and down payment assistance programs. Through the program, you may be able to qualify for a state-specific government program, such as Arizona Home in Five, California CalPLUS, Colorado FirstStep, Iowa IFA, Nevada NHD Home is Possible, Ohio Your Choice, Texas 5-Star Advantage or Utah UHC. Teacher Next Door also utilizes national programs, such as Chenoa Fund, Home Ready and others. When you apply, a Next Door Certified Program Specialist will help you determine which loan and assistance programs will help you receive the maximum benefits.
According to HUD Housing Secretary Marcia Fudge, “A good home shapes nearly every part of our lives.” “I couldn’t agree more.” Says Teacher Next Door National Director, Steve Parks. “This organization has been my life’s work and passion for more than a decade. It is our mission to increase home ownership among teachers and other public servants, support community development and increase access to affordable housing, free from discrimination. As home prices continue to rise, I feel this program is more needed than ever, and I know these benefits mean a lot to the communities we serve.”

Sean, Thank you so much for working with all the teams and making my dream come true to buy my own home.

"The team was absolutely amazing. I have never worked with a team of professionals that was supportive as with The Teacher Next Door Program. I always felt respected and treated with dignity from the first phone call to the last walk through. I was educated along the way and I was given choices in my process. This is important because I didn't feel pressured to just sign something or just say yes to anything. Sheff always made himself available to me. I really felt like I had a team working with me, with my interests first instead of feeling rushed or pressured to sign papers just to close another deal. I will always recommend The Teacher Next Door Program to any teacher. HUGS AND SHOUT OUTS TO SHEFF, APRIL, KYRA & anyone who had a helping hand in my process. Thank you all,
"Brian and him team were excellent!"
"When I started the journey to buy a home, I did not have much faith that I would qualify for anything. I am a single mom, school teacher living on a budget, and didn't have any credit history. Samantha Wallace mentored me through the home buying process and gave me the confidence that I needed to keep moving forward in perusing my family's dream home. She advised me through every step necessary in order for me to qualify for an affordable option that met my needs. For an entire year she called me once a week and touched base; never rushing or giving up on me. Sometimes her phone calls were business oriented, sometimes she was offering advice, and sometimes she was just a friend offering me emotional support because the home buying process is stressful. I am so happy to announce that my family now owns our dream home. I feel like Samantha made it all happen. I will forever be grateful for her and all the things she has done for my family. Samantha Wallace is a dream maker!"
"Jose was extremely knowledgeable and made the process so painless and easy to understand."
"Smooth Transaction. Very professional."
"Overall great experience! Definitely made the home buying process easy."
"Samantha was great to work with. She was fast & efficient, In this fast paced market that we are in right now, it’s very important for me to be able to get a quick response. She was always available - even on the weekends. Although we were several states away, this process was seamless I look forward to working with Samantha in the future.
