First-Time Homebuyers Workshop

Thinking of buying a home? The Cumberland County Housing and Redevelopment Authorities offers free First-Time Homebuyer Workshops that can reduce the cost of homeownership. Workshop participants can receive down payment and closing cost assistance when purchasing a home in Cumberland County.

The First-Time Homebuyer's Down Payment and Closing Cost Assistance Progam provides up to $3,000 to qualified buyers who purchase Cumberland County homes and have a gross household income between 80% and 100% of the county's median income. Up to $5,000 in assistance can be provided to qualified first-time homebuyers that have a gross household income of less than 80% of the county's median income. Assistance can be used toward the purchase price of the house and/or closing costs.

More details about the program can be found on the Redevelopment Authority's website
