As others have said, the answer is yes. A better question would be, what specifically are you hoping to find in terms of assistance? There are many ways to get dollars on the table for you in a purchase along with traditional assistance from third party sources.
I am glad to have a Phone conversation and give you details, just call me during normal ours at 773-732-9123.

I am a local lender in Chicago, and, depending upon just how "fair" your credit is, can certainly tell you whether or not you'd qualify for the FTHB programs already mentioned by the realtors who answered this question.

These programs not only allow for down payments as low as 3 percent conforming or 3 1/2 percent FHA, but also allow for Down Payment Assistance of up to $6000, reduced cost MI and alternative sources of down payment funds.

To find out more, give me a call at 773-416-7107, shoot me an email, or feel free to fill out a complete online FREE application at my website.
