There are several programs available to assist first time borrowers. METEC a community development corporation has funds that range between $7500 and $8500 based on household income. IHDA has several programs. Banks that participated in the Federal Home Loan Bank may have funds up to $8000. Call Cheryll Boswell the executive director at 309 676 3832 for more information.

Lorene, Each program will have different perimeters. Anyone who is a first-time homebuyer should talk to any morgage loan originator. They would be the best person to guide you in the process. My job is to lead you in the right direction. I suggest you call the bank you want to work with and talk to a morgage originator. At Keller Williams we have Busey Bank in our building. Give Jeremy Hopwood a call at 282-4914. He will take the time to help you. Jeremy will know all the perimeters of every program available and maximum earnings allowed to qualify for the program that fits you best. Thank you, Jody Hoerr, Keller Williams.

Hi Lorene....hope you are doing well! The down payment assistance programs come and go as funding becomes available and then is used up. There are a variety of programs out there right is best to speak with your loan officer about which programs would work for you. If you need any assistance in that, please let me know.......Greg McCoy.......309-687-4826

The City of Peoria grant program is closed (out of money), for now. The program is supposed to start back up in November or so. Guidelines are you must be first-time home buyer (or not have owned a home in the last 3 years), income limits vary according to number of household members. However there is a assist program through the state, that still has grant money, that you may want to check into. Also, there is a bank in town that has a 100% financing program for qualified buyers, if your issue is coming up with a down payment. I'd be glad to help you! Give me a call.
