FAST Reports on First Time Homebuyer Mortage Assistance

FAST's Affordable Housing Committee met recently with Kathryn Driver, the Executive Director of the Pinellas County Housing Finance Authority. In addition to our work with her in driving rental units for affordable housing, we also discussed assistance for first time homebuyers.


There is a Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County First Time Homebuyer Program, where those who haven't ever owned a home or not in the past 3 years or are a verteran, may qualify. Down payment and closing cost assistance is available. First step is taking a Homebuyer Education class. Then contact a lender from the Approved Lender List to assist you in securing a mortgage.

UUSP FAST leaders, Pat Fling and Tony Kamuth, have copies of the approved lender lists. See them or contact Pat by email.
