Grant Programs available for First Time Home Buyers

First of all — I am so happy you’re considering moving to the area! I may be biased, but I think our community is a wonderful place to call home. While this is an exciting new chapter for you, I also understand the challenges that come with navigating a move to a new area.

One of the most important steps in preparing to move is finding a home you love. I know the area, both as a RE/MAX® agent and neighbor, and will go above and beyond to make this transition seamless for you. In addition to my exceptional customer service, I can connect you with the latest tools to make your home search as easy and convenient as possible.

When shopping for a home, it is important to choose the right neighborhood that fits your unique needs. You’ll want to prioritize neighborhood features that are important to you, as well as factors that will be practical and convenient in the future. Lean on me as a support system to provide information on the best neighborhoods for your lifestyle, property taxes, school districts, commute times, public transportation, area amenities and more! I know the nuances of the local market and can help you find the right home at the right price.

This falls under Burlington County NJ Freeholders Financing Guidelines:

Burlington County receives an allocation of HOME Investment Partnership Program funds each year from the Federal government to provide assistance to low and moderate income residents through a variety of local housing-related projects. The Board of Chosen Freeholders has designated a portion of these funds to be made available through the First time Homebuyer Program, which is administered by the Department of Economic Development.

The First-time Homebuyer Program provides direct financial assistance to low income Burlington County residents to help with the purchase of a first home. Eligible applicants may receive a loan for up to $4,000 in closing cost assistance and an additional $5,000 toward their down payment.


This falls under USDA Financing Guidelines:

Rural Development income limits are based on the number of members residing within the household. Rural Development allows deductions for children, childcare, and other eligible expenses. By allowing lenders to “adjust” the annual income, more individuals and families can qualify for 100% Guaranteed financing.
