Hi Samantha,

I received a free report at : my annual credit report.com, a few years back.
Credit scores however was not provided, at least not for free.
You might want to check them out.

Samantha, do not understand your question regarding the down payment assistant program, Do you need a down payment program that will give you 3k to 4k ? or you have 3k to 4k to put down on a house and you are looking for additional assistant? Georgia Dream is a good down payment assistant program.

Absolutely! There are two options:

AnnualCreditReport.com -- you can get a free copy of each of your credit reports once each year

CreditKarma - Allows you free access to both your credit report and your credit score. CreditKarma does this routinely; it's not just once a year.

*** I've attached an article about free credit scores and reports from a local consumer reporter that has been on Atlanta radio for years.

Hey Samantha,
Try free credit report dot com. The trick with them is that they want you to sign up for their continual monitoring of your credit report, which they charge for. But if you subscribe, get your free report, then cancel before their "free trial" is over, then you can get one free copy of your report and cancel before.the automatic charging begins. I haven't done this in a while, but it worked the last time I tried it. Check it out.

The answer is yes and no. Here's why: Credit scoring pertains to the company that's pulling it. Car dealers obtain scores different from mortgage companies different from credit card companies. They are weighed differently. The best place to get a score for mortgages is through a mortgage company, car - car company etc. Those online companies will not give you accurate scores unless you just want to know a score for your soul. Then, they'll try to sell you all that garbage to keep your score in tact. Check out Clark Howard's website for more information.
