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.
