City of Belle Glade Re-establishes Home Ownership Program
The City of Belle Glade has reorganized and renamed the City’s Housing Development Program and Policy for first time homebuyers. Formerly known as the Community Revitalizing Initiative Program (CRIP) and Pocket of Poverty Housing Program (POP), the City’s housing program is now known as the “City of Belle Glade Revolving Loan Fund Program (RLF).” Revising the program has afforded the City the opportunity to expand the program to include consideration of any eligible credit worthy first time home buyer applicant.
Limited funds are available for construction or purchase of an existing home for eligible credit worthy area applicants. As such, applicants are processed on a first come, first served basis of completed applications, along with the applicant’s ability to qualify.
Tired of renting and think you are ready for homeownership? Ask yourself -
? Do I have a steady source of income (usually a job)?
? Have I been employed on a regular basis for the last 2-3 years?
? Is my current income reliable?
? Do I have a good record of paying my bills?
? Do I have few or no outstanding long-term debts, like car payments?
? Do I have money saved up for a down payment?
? Do I have the ability to pay a mortgage plus additional costs for maintenance and upkeep every month?
If you answered yes to all of the above, you need to know that the City of Belle Glade is accepting applications for the Revolving Loan Program at:
