Entry Cost Assistance Matrix Released
The Minnesota Home Ownership Center is pleased to announce the release of its much-anticipated "Entry Cost Matrix". The Matrix outlines down-payment and entry cost assistance programs that are available to residents of the state of Minnesota. The Center would like to thank the Minnesota Assocation of Realtors for their financial support of the creation of the Matrix.
While the Matrix is available to anyone... we recommend that if you're thinking of purchasing your first home in Minnesota - and are looking for down-payment help or entry cost assistance, that you speak with a certified Home Stretch (pre-purchase) counselor. Remember, homeownership is a HUGE undertaking.
The Matrix is organized geographically, which allows readers to quickly find the area of the state that they are most interested in.
Funding for down-payment assistance and entry-cost help is FLUID. The information may change. Please contact a program adminstrator to see if funds are available, and, if not, if there is a waiting list for access to the funds.
OUR ASK OF YOU: If you are aware of an error on the Matrix... or if you know of any additional programs, funds or assistance that are NOT included in the Matrix, please contact the MN Home Ownership Center with that information. Together we can help break down the barriers to first-time home ownership!
The Matrix can be downloaded here.
