Massachusetts First Time Home Buyer Grants

Are you thinking of buying your first home in Massachusetts? Would you like a free gift of money to help you purchase that first home? Unfortunately, the state of Massachusetts does not provide free grant money directly to its residents who are first time home buyers and need help with the down payment and closing costs as some other states do. However, the state does issue first time home buyer grant money to communities, and those communities provide grants directly to individuals and families. We have the contact details lower on this page. There is also Federal Grant money available as well as grants from private foundations. This is free money that shouldn’t be passed up! The grant awards can be in the thousands of dollars. It will be well worth your time to educate yourself about the first time home buyer grant programs that are available to Massachusetts residents.

The Housing Development Division of the Department of Housing and Community Development provides funding to developers, non-profit organizations and communities to assist first time homebuyers.
