|C4T: HUD Community special programs:
1) Officer next Door:
HUD wants to strengthen America's communities and build a safer nation by offering homeownership opportunities to law enforcement officers through the Officer Next Door Program. Designated HUD-owned properties in revitalization areas will be available under this program at a 50 percent discount. To make properties even more affordable, when a law enforcement officer uses an FHA-insured mortgage the downpayment is $100.
The law enforcement officer must occupy the purchased property as his/her principal residence for at least three years. Although not required, law enforcement officers are encouraged to purchase a home in the community they serve.
HUD's designated revitalization areas are neighborhoods that have many vacant properties, including properties needing extensive repairs, and have been selected by the locality for economic development efforts.
2) Teacher next Door:
HUD's wants to strengthen America's communities. The Teacher Next Door (TND) Initiative offers HUD-acquired, single family homes to public school teachers at a 50 percent discount. Teachers are an integral part of our communities and are often the most important mentors in a child's life. In fact, other than families, teachers are often the most important mentors in a child’s life.
Under the program, HUD offers homes located in designated revitalization areas. Revitalization areas are typically in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, have many vacant properties and often have high crime rates, but are considered good candidates for economic development and improvement. Homes offered for sale in the program were previously insured through the FHA and then foreclosed. HUD also reduces the downpayment requirement to just $100 if the home is purchased with an FHA insured mortgage.
Teachers must live in the property as their sole residence for at least three years after purchase. A teacher is defined as an individual employed full time by a public school, private school, or Federal, State, county, or municipal educational agency as a State-certified classroom teacher or administrator in grades K through 12.
