First Time Homebuyer Programs in Georgia
by: Michael Saunders
In July 1996, the Governor and General Assembly made a vital decision to join together the Georgia Housing and Finance Authority (GHFA) with the Department of Community Affairs.
Today, the agency is acting together as one and is called the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
At present, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, also known as DCA, is operating a host of state and federal grant programs while serving as the state's leading agency in housing finance and development.
In addition, the DCA also functions as the agency that promulgates building codes, does comprehensive planning, technical and research assistance to local governments, and finally, serves as the premiere agency for Georgia's solid waste reduction efforts.
Among all of the first time homebuyer programs of the DCA, some of the most notable are the following:
a) Community HOME Investment Program (CHIP) - This program revolves around the primary idea of using a portion of DCA's HOME funds to assist local governments, nonprofit organizations and public housing authorities in the process of addressing the needs of affordable housing development in their communities.
