We Need Your Help!
Iowans face too many obstacles when it comes to buying a home. Rising cost of living and crushing student loan debt make it difficult to save for a down payment. High closing costs, taxes, and fees add to the problem. If adopted, the Iowa First Time Home Buyer Program would change all that.
It would create a dedicated savings account to be used exclusively by Iowans toward the purchase or construction of a first home in Iowa.
A recent Iowa poll shows 80 percent of Iowans support the Iowa First Time Home Buyer Program.
We should be doing everything we can to encourage home ownership. That’s why we need the Iowa First Time Home Buyer Program.
