How to Find Home Buying Grants

by Contributor ; Updated July 27, 2017

If you're looking to purchase a home, but don't have the funding to purchase a home outright, you should know that there are home buying grants available to help individuals like you. Learn how to find home buying grants — grants that will help you out on a down payment to those that ensure a lower price.

Step 1

Check out HUD — the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Although HUD provides neither loans nor grants, it does work through local governments and non-profit organizations to facilitate them.

Step 2

Visit grants.gov. The website's home page provides a synopsis of each of the categories of grants available. You may conduct a keyword search for the type of grant you seek — "home" for example. Examine the resulting list of grants, not all of which will be relevant. Download the necessary applications.

Step 3

Explore resources at state level. Visit Buying a Home Info.com and follow the link for the state in which you would like to purchase a home.
