Applicants for these special homes must submit FHLB's form signed by a qualified third-party agency stating that the applicant meets the criteria described on the form. Qualified agencies include government or nonprofit organizations that provide homeless housing or housing referral services.
Please note that the FHLB form includes reference to qualified applicants who presently own their home. For the purposes of the sales at Village Gardens, current homeowners are excluded by requirements of other funders. Homes at Village Gardens must be sold only to first-time homebuyers. If you have not ever owned a home or if you have not owned a home within the last three years, you qualify as a first-time homebuyer.
