Great News for Charleston Military and Local Heroes!
Today, the South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority (SC State Housing) announced a program designed to help South Carolina law enforcement officers, teachers, firefighters, nurses, veterans and EMS personnel who want to become homeowners.
“Palmetto Heroes” will provide low interest home loans to current South Carolina law enforcement, teachers, firefighters, nurses, veterans and EMS personnel who qualify. The $15 million initiative will also provide another crucial incentive –down payment assistance of up to $5,000.
“Being able to afford a home is a growing concern for everyone in our state,” said Valarie Williams, SC State Housing’s Executive Director. “It’s important that we salute these Palmetto State heroes and invest in them.” “This is just one way SC State Housing can recognize these dedicated individuals who contribute so much to our state.”
Palmetto Heroes is available to law enforcement officers, teachers, firefighters, veterans, nurses, and EMS personnel who are currently certified in their profession, and reside and work in South Carolina or have a contract to begin working here within 60 days of closing on a home.
Eligible Palmetto Heroes home buyers can get a fixed interest rate of 4.625% on a mortgage through SC State Housing’s First-time Home Buyer Program as well as down payment assistance of up to $5,000.
