Webinar: Changes to the Hometown Hero Program


Mark T. Pease with Florida Housing is hosting four webinars to help Realtors understand recent changes to a program that helps community-support workers buy a home.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The “Live Local Act” passed during the 2023 session of the Florida Legislature made some changes to the state’s Hometown Hero Program, including an expansion of eligibility requirements and the maximum loan amount offered.

The changes, effective July 1, 2023, will be explained by Mark T. Pease with Florida Housing, the state’s arm for many affordable housing programs. The webinars take place: June 13, 14, 15 and 16, all 2-3 p.m., EST.

The Hometown Hero Program provides down payment and closing cost assistance to first-time, income-qualified homebuyers for purchasing a primary residence in the community where they work and serve. The Florida Hometown Heroes Loan Program also offers a lower first mortgage interest rate and additional special benefits to those who have served and continue to serve their country.
