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 FiveCalifornia CalPLUSColorado FirstStepIowa IFANevada NHD Home is PossibleOhio Your ChoiceTexas 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.”

In the past twelve months, Teacher Next Door and Next Door Programs have helped over 50,000 applicants. To get more information on the program, read buyer reviews, or to apply, you may visit the official program website at www.TeacherNextDoor.us.

Sean, Thank you so much for working with all the teams and making my dream come true to buy my own home. The whole process would not have occurred without you running interference and running with the ball. You are great and thank you again for all you did and it was a great pleasure working with you. Best regards

Samantha was fantastic throughout the whole process. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and remained in constant contact with me throughout., including evenings and weekends. I am certainly going to recommend her to anyone that I come across who is in the market for a mortgage. She and Danielle are the absolute best.
