April 7 Is Deadline To Apply For Homebuying Grants
Credit unions have until April 7 to apply to the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) for funds available from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide housing counseling for potential first-time homebuyers with low to moderate incomes. Grant awards pay salaries and benefits of staff to work on housing counseling programs for qualifying credit unions or CUSOs. To qualify, those starting new programs must have the capacity to implement them and comply with federal requirements from the beginning. Applications are posted at www.ncuf.coop - click "Grants Available for Housing Counselors."
