Home Buyer Programs and Services in the City of Garden Grove

The remaining First-Time Home Buyer Workshops for 2016 are on Saturday, September 24, and Saturday, December 3, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the H. Louis Lake Senior Center, located at 11300 Stanford Avenue. The two, 8-hour workshops are offered for those interested in the First-Time Homebuyer Program for low-income applicants purchasing their first home in Garden Grove.

To qualify for the program, the applicant must attend a First-Time Home Buyer workshop; meet the program income requirements; purchase a manufactured home in Garden Grove for under $120,000; occupy the manufactured home throughout the life of the loan; and cannot have owned a home in the past three years.

The City is also offering a Home Improvement Program that assists low-income applicants to rehabilitate their manufactured home. To qualify for the program, the home must be a manufactured home in Garden Grove; the applicant must occupy the home throughout the life of the loan and meet program income requirements.

Both programs are funded by CalHOME through the California Department of Housing and Community Development and will continue until October 1, 2017 or until funds are expended.
