If you feel that your credit may disqualify you from purchasing a home at this time, Justine Petersen Housing and Reinvestment Corporation has a free credit repair program that may help you. 

The primary objective of the Madison County HOMEbuyer Program is to increase the home ownership rate, especially among lower income and minority households, with the ultimate goals of revitalizing and stabilizing communities. The HOMEbuyer Program assists with one of the largest obstructions to home ownership -- the down payment and closing costs -- by providing funds for down payment and closing costs to eligible individuals. Depending on the individual’s or household’s income, financial assistance up to $5,000 may be available.

To be eligible for HOMEbuyer Program assistance, individuals must be low- or moderate-income first-time home buyers interested in purchasing single-family housing. HOMEbuyer Program funds may be used to purchase existing or newly-constructed one to two unit family housing, condominium units. Households that qualify for HOMEbuyer Program assistance must have total household incomes that do not exceed 80% of area median income.
