First-Time Homebuyer Assistance Program
Jefferson Parish has been designated as a Participating Jurisdiction for the HOME Program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
and as such, has designated a portion of its HOME funds for use in the "First-Time Homebuyer Assistance Program." The actual number of households that will be assisted
is contingent upon the actual level of assistance received per client participating. Although the program allows assistance up to $50,000 per client, for Jefferson Parish
and up to $60,000 per client for Kenner, this average should not be used as an expectation of benefit since the average level of assistance tends to change from year to year.
Stopped accepting applications at noon on March 31, 2023. We typically close the program for a brief time each year to update program guidelines and implement the new income levels provided by HUD. We look forward to working with you when the program reopens later this year.
