SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO HOPE PROGRAM!
Under the Home Ownership Purchase Enhancement (HOPE) program, MHDC provides incentives up to $1,750 to encourage Missourians to purchase homes. $15 million was allocated to the program and is available on a first-come, first-served basis; there is currently more than $12 million still available for qualified homebuyers. Please note this significant change: to qualify, a homebuyer must complete the purchase of their home by August 31, 2010, and MHDC must receive the HOPE application by September 30, 2010. Homes purchased after August 31, 2010 will not be eligible for the HOPE program. Additional program information and documents are available on their website, www.mhdc.com."
