Honoring veterans through mortgage assistance


FloridaHomebuyer program(s): Veterans are treated as first-time buyers in the state of Florida as well. Florida, like many states, offers qualified first-time buyers “fixed, low-interest rate mortgage loans.” In addition, a Mortgage Credit Certificate can be combined with a Florida Housing Finance Corporation loan to help homebuyers save on their annual taxes. Closing cost and down payment assistance is also available, but is offered by local, county or city governments.

Veteran population: 1,543,496

Notable military bases in state: Eglin AFB, MacDill AFB, Naval Air Station Pensacola
