To find out, please email or call toll-free at (866) 443-7637. Current and former firefighters, law enforcement professionals, military, healthcare workers, emergency medical professionals, and teachers typically qualify.

What does my credit score need to be?

This is a tough one, as it depends on the program you’re working with. Check out our guide to Down Payment Assistance to see various credit score requirements.

What if I am already working with a real estate agent or mortgage lender?

Unfortunately, if you have already signed any legal agreements you may not work with a Homes for Heroes real estate specialist, and therefore cannot receive the Hero Rewards offered. If you have not yet signed any documents, though feel free to sign up  to start working with affiliated professionals!

What if I’m not ready to buy or sell?

Real estate professionals, from agents to lenders, aren’t just there for you during the transaction.

They can guide you through any questions you have about getting ready to qualify for homeownership, and you’ll already have a relationship with them when you are ready!
