Madera REALTORS Helping Homeowners To Secure Down Payments
Grants will be awarded by the Madera REALTORS ® during the Madera Business Extravaganza and Home Expo on Thursday, June 16, 2016
The agriculture rich Madera County is known for it’s strong sense of community, so it’s no surprise that The Madera Association of REALTORS® (MAR) would go the extra mile to support residents and newcomers. The association just secured a $25,000 grant from the National Association of REALTORS® that will help prospective Madera homeowners to fund their down payments.
The $25,000 grant will be awarded during the Madera Business Extravaganza and Home Expo at the Madera Fairgrounds on Thursday, June 16, 2016 from 4 to 8 PM. MAR will be giving out three $5,000 and four $2,500 grants.
Prospective homeowners can apply for a grant at the Home Expo website or at the MAR offices on 411 N. I Street. The only stipulation by the association, is that eligible applicants use a Madera Association REALTOR®, lender and title company.
The association is working hard to spread the word, so that everyone has a chance to apply for the grant. There will be televison and radio commercials promoting the grant and the Home Expo awards will be featured on Univision, as well as channels 24 and 47.
