The City of Garden Grove is offering First-Time Home Buyer Programs for qualifying low-income families. The CalHome loan is a 30-year deferred payment loan requiring no monthly payments, not exceeding $60,000, which accrues 3-percent simple annual interest for the life of the loan. The loan is designed to assist with covering the difference between a qualifying mortgage amount and the actual price of a single-family home for qualified low- and very low-income families.
Openings are available for the First-Time Home Buyer virtual workshops which introduce potential Garden Grove homeowners to the process of buying a home, including how to qualify for a home mortgage, and information regarding financial assistance programs offered through the City. The workshops will take place on Saturdays, August 28, 2021, October 23, 2021, December 4, 2021, February 19, 2022, April 16, 2022, and June 4, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
