Hometown Housing Town Hall Meeting Set for Sutton
Nebraska Ag Connection - 03/15/2017
Sutton area residents are invited to a public meeting at the Sutton Memorial Library located at 201 S. Saunders in Sutton on March 29 at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will focus on opportunities available for families and individuals to achieve the dream of
Expanding and preserving homeownership is an important foundation to the economy and provides stability in rural communities. Available housing is important in supporting employers in the community, provides a place "where jobs sleep" and allows families to
live and raise their families in communities where they work.
State and federal partners, community officials, lenders, realtors, major employers, home builders and other housing partners will convene for the meeting. Families that are interested in living in rural communities and owning their own home or existing home
owners that need assistance with home repairs should plan to attend.
A representative from USDA Rural Development will be available to discuss programs that offer up to 100% financing for a home purchase. Financing is available with interest rates at 3% and below, and households may qualify for rates as low as 1%.
These affordable rates with no or a low down payment makes home ownership affordable and may be less than rent. Low interest rate loans at 1% are also available for home repairs for existing home-owners for very low income household. Grants are available
for elderly households 62 years of age or older for home repairs that are unable to repay a loan.
