1st Time Homebuyer Program

Burlington County receives an allocation of HOME Investment Partnership Program funds each year from the Federal government to provide assistance to low and moderate income residents through a variety of local housing-related projects. The Board of Chosen Freeholders has designated a portion of these funds to be made available through the First-time Homebuyers Program, which is administered by the Department of Economic Development.

The First-time Homebuyers Program provides direct financial assistance to low-income Burlington County residents to help with the purchase of a first home. Eligible applicants may receive a loan for up to $4,000 in closing cost assistance and Lower-income applicants may receive an additional $5,000 toward their down payment.
