First-Time Homebuyer Programs in Georgia
Georgia's Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCCS) helps first-time homebuyers by providing free, one-on-one homebuying counseling sessions that explain the mortgage process and what goes into owning a home.
First-time homebuyer assistance programs and/or grants were researched by the team at FHA.com. Please note that all programs listed on this website may involve a second mortgage with payments that are forgiven, deferred, or subsidized in some manner until resale of the mortgaged property.
FHA.com's compilation is not a complete list, but it can serve as a starting point in your search for the down payment assistance program or grant for your situation. It is up to the consumer to contact these entities and find out the specifics of each program.
