“The Everyday Heroes Housing Assistance Fund helped us land the perfect home! My EHHAF agent was very good about explaining the whole process to us and was a pleasure to work with. We were slightly hesitant to use the program when we found out we couldn’t pick our own lender, but their lender blew our expectations out of the water. Even with a large time difference they were always quick to respond and made sure that we understood every step along the way. We locked in a very low interest rate and were even able to close a week early!
We are very thankful for our gift funds, but due to the fact that, in some cases, you receive the funds as a reimbursement after closing, you will still have to be able to cover some up front expense. In our case, we used the funds to cover all of our moving expenses and some minor repairs to the house; which was a big help! We would highly recommend that any eligible hero apply to the program.”
