The "Expand to Homeownership" Grant Program

The "Expand to Homeownership" Grant Program is designed to help New Orleans homebuyers with down payment and closing costs when purchasing a home. This program provides a Grant of up to 4% of the loan amount. All mortgages are fixed rate 30-year loans. Borrowers must occupy the home as their principal residence.

How it Works: If your loan amount is $150,000

OPTION 1 offers a 4% GRANT $150,000 x 4% = $6,000
OPTION 2 offers a 3% GRANT $150,000 x 4% = $4,500
(OPTION 1 will carry a higher mortgage interest rate than OPTION 2)
