The Federal Government has provided funding for Families interested in owning a home in the form of down payment assistance. The program is called the "Neighborhood Stabilization Program" (NSP). This funding is provided through the County of San Bernardino Economic Development Department. There are certain qualifications and training that need to be met prior to consideration. For more information, please visit the San Bernardino County Economic Development Agency. For more information about NSP, please visit the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Also of interest is Fannie Mae's First Look Initiative where Families interested in owning a home, Government entities and Non-profit organizations get a first look at new listings. Check with your Realtor to see if they have information about this program or contact the San Bernardino Economic Development Department at 909-388-0800.
Fannie Mae listings can be viewed at Home Path. Sign up for the "property alert" option to get listings as soon as they are available to the public.
