As we celebrate the 4th, we also remember and appreciate the sacrifice our country’s veterans have made so that we may enjoy a free Independence Day.
One way we can help our veterans enjoy financial independence is with home ownership. North Carolina has a number of ways to help veterans in our state buy a home and be able to stay in their home.
Mortgage Credit Certificate
We’ve covered this program as a way to help first-time buyers, but it is also available for qualified veterans.
The Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) can help veterans with mortgage payments by lowering their federal tax liability.
$15k Down Payment Assistance
If you’re a military veteran considering a home in Cabarrus, Cumberland, Guilford, Johnston, or Mecklenburg Counties, you may qualify for $15,000 in down payment help.
NC Home Advantage Mortgage
This North Carolina program can help veterans keep their mortgage payments low by offering up to 5% down payment assistance. Plus, this program accepts VA loans.
Programs to Help Veteran Homeowners
If you’re a military veteran who has purchased a home, there are North Carolina programs to help you stay in your home.
The NC Foreclosure Prevention Fund offers zero-interest, deferred loans to help pay the mortgage while veterans who are transitioning to civilian life train for a new job.
The NCHFA can also help veterans finance accessibility modifications or essential repairs.
