I just checked the hud site http://(www.hud.gov) and here is a quote from the requirements:
You may participate in the Good Neighbor Next Door program as a Firefighter/Emergency Medical Technician if you are employed full-time as a firefighter or emergency medical technician by a fire department or emergency medical services responder unit of the federal government, a state, unit of general local government, or an Indian tribal government serving the area where the home is located.
Please go check it out for yourself. If it is the idea of low prices that has attracted you to the program, maybe you can still find you a home that meets your criteria, without using the program. Contact me!
