Pennsylvania has the PHFA program (Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency) which offers lower interest rates, and in some cases downpayment and/or closing cost assistance. They are able to offer these programs through the sale of mortgage revenue bonds. I have provided a link to the site, below.

If you are looking to purchase a new home, you can take advantage of a number of Pennsylvania first-time buyer assistance programs, which can help cover some costs associated with the buying and home ownership process.

I have included a pdf file on my web site of agencies and PA counties that provide closing cost assistance money. These programs have been approved for use in conjunction with a PHFA home loan.

Deborah:
There are also local programs as well. You must of course, meet any requirements, and some, such as the Genisis Program in Montgomery County will require some modest "classroom" time.
Feel free to contact me at any time.

There is, but the condition is, the lenders have to accept the grant. You may need to get a certain lender to accept it, and the conditions to get that loan may be harder for you to get. Just weigh out your options. You may be able to get 5000 to 10000 or more back from the seller to save you time and effort. It is called seller assist, it works the same way and you can choose your lender. Let me know if you need help with that.
