New Grant Program May Be Your Key To Homeownership!

Sep 21, 2022

The Bernadette Kelly Group is excited to share news with our New Bedford and Fall River neighbors of a great new program that offers down payment and closing cost grants for first time home buyers.

MassDREAMS is a grant program designed to help with the costs of purchasing a new home for residents of MA communities that have been hit the hardest by the economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. If you have been thinking about buying a home but don’t have enough savings yet to cover all the costs of buying a home, this could be your opportunity to make it happen! 

To be eligible for this program you must be a first time home buyer, meet income and other eligibility requirements and be a current resident of one of the following 29 communities in MA that have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19: Attleboro, Barnstable, Boston, Brockton, Chelsea, Chicopee, Everett, Fall River, Fitchburg, Framingham, Haverhill, Holyoke, Lawrence, Leominster, Lowell, Lynn, Malden, Methuen, New Bedford, Peabody, Pittsfield, Quincy, Randolph, Revere, Salem, Springfield, Taunton, Westfield, and Worcester.
