hurricane katrina survivors need your help!

lynda1 started this conversation

On aug. 29TH 2005 my familys life was changed.We was dis placed by katrina like so many.We finnally got a house through fema.It is a hud house.We found out that we could purchase the home.We was approved the loan to buy the house.Everything seemed to be going well until 2 days ago our mortage company called and said that we missed the deadline in closing to obtain the no money down program that we was approved for.Now we a deadline of Sept.1st. to come up with $2400.00or we lose the opportunity to buy this house.So once again my family is going to lose the place we have called home.My husband is a very hard worker.I recently found work also.but ther is no way we can come up with that kind of money in that time frame.We lost alot of our belongings due to the hurricane now we may lose our home again unless we can find some help.We dont like asking for anything but i just dont know what else to do.The mortage company said that the money had to come in the form of a gift or a grant.We could not get it any other way because we are getting financing through FHA.So please help me and my family keep our home!God Bless you! email

Go to the government's official website and locate the grant programs that provide grant money for providing downpayments on HUD housing. The sooner you locate the programs the sooner you can apply for the grants that provide downpayment grants.
