Homebuyers, Homeowners, Renters & Special Needs

The Montana Board of Housing offers programs to assist first-time homebuyers; helps governments, nonprofit groups, and private developers create affordable homes, apartments and supportive housing; and provides funding for rehab and repair assistance for homeowners through local groups.

So whether you are trying to buy your first home, maintain and keep the home you have, or protect your rights as a renter, we may be able to help.

If your income has kept you out of the housing market, our First-Time Homebuyer 30-year fixed-rate mortgage and closing cost assistance may make the difference. And if you think you earn too much to qualify, check out our income limits – they may be higher than you expect. We recommend that anyone who is thinking about buying a home take a First-Time Homebuyer class offered in many communities in Montana, and require it for most of our loans.  Click the logo below.  You will find useful advice that will show you how to open the door to your first home.
