SUBSIDIES

Metro North CDC works intensively with each individual and family to help them navigate the process of purchasing a home. We partner with several programs to help homebuyers access low-interest, fixed rate financing and grant money, as well as subsidies available to first-time homebuyers. The following are some of the programs we utilize:

Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs)

Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) are neighborhood-based non-profit organizations that assist individuals with purchasing affordable housing. By teaming up with lenders and homebuyer counseling organizations, CHDOs help income-eligible potential homebuyers qualify for down payment and closing cost assistance. As a registered CHDO, Metro North is eligible for up to $30,000 in assistance per home from the city of Jacksonville.
