The program is designed to help eligible home buyers purchase single family houses within the City of Jeannette.
The assistance grant may be used to pay up to 50% of closing costs and/or required down payment. The maximum amount of the assistance may not exceed $ 3,000.00. The funds are offered through a matching payment of up to half of a buyer's down payment and closing costs.
A second mortgage in the amount equal to the amount contributed by the city will be placed on the property. Twenty percent of the assistance loan will be forgiven each year. The lien will be forgiven after five years of continuous occupancy by the home buyer.
