No! Whoever told you that doesn’t know what they are talking about or they are trying to scam you. There are very few grants available for buying or remodeling homes unless you plan to use the facility to provide shelter or housing solutions for the disabled, elderly, and/or impoverished children and families.
There are, however, local and state programs (not direct grants) available to support low-income families in purchasing their first homes through individual development accounts, low-interest loans, and/or construction support activities. Contact your city/county housing authority, local banks, or Mayor’s office for information on these types of programs.
Let us help you meet your M/WBE utilization goal. We can help you locate funding, apply for funding, and help organizations measure & report on outcomes. See our experience with grant writing and evaluation services HERE.
