DES MOINES – The Iowa Finance Authority recently recognized the top Iowa lenders from throughout the state for their efforts in advancing affordable homeownership through the Iowa Finance Authority’s programs in calendar year 2016.
The Iowa Finance Authority offers affordable mortgage and down payment assistance programs for eligible home buyers through a network of Participating Lenders. In 2016, local lenders assisted a total of more than 2,300 Iowans in purchasing a home using Iowa Finance Authority programs.
In addition, the Iowa Finance Authority jointly administers the Military Homeownership Assistance Program in partnership with the Iowa Department of Veterans Affairs. This program offers eligible service members and veterans a $5,000 down payment assistance grant. More information about these programs is available at IowaFinanceAuthority.gov.
“I thank our lender partners recognized today for their shared dedication to connecting Iowans with affordable homeownership opportunities,” said Iowa Finance Authority Executive Director Dave Jamison. “These partnerships translate to opportunities for Iowans to benefit from both the convenience of working with their local lender and access to Iowa Finance Authority’s unique homeownership programs.”
