First Time Home Buyer Grant


I recently learned about a valuable grant given to first time homebuyers in Nebraska.  Since you decided to make the leap into homeownership with me as your guide, I want to make sure you are given all of the tools and benefits that come with buying your first home. Here is some information regarding the grant.

The Details:

Award Amount: $250 Can be used for anything you wish and doesn’t have to ever be paid back. Repaint, landscape, put it towards new appliances, or just take a chunk off your mortgage! Whatever you need.


  • Must turn in the application (enclosed) along with a copy of your closing statement and certificate from the completed course (below).
  • Must take a REACH Course with one of these affiliates. Call and mention the first time homebuyer’s grant to make sure you get into the correct class. Currently, there is not an online option to take.

Today's Inventory
