First Time Homebuyers Program
As of February 16, 2012, the City of Garden Grove has depleted all available First Time Homebuyer loan funds. The City does not anticipate receiving any new funds in 2012. When funds are available, Neighborhood Improvement has First Time Homebuyers Programs to assist low-income applicants to qualify to purchase their first home. The programs make available a limited number of silent second and third mortgages to help applicants with the money necessary to qualify to purchase a home in Garden Grove.
