Housing meeting in Giltner

Hamilton County area residents are invited to a public meeting at the Giltner Community Center located at 4021 N Commercial Ave, in Giltner, on Aug. 10 at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will focus on opportunities available for families and individuals to achieve the dream of homeownership.  
Expanding and preserving homeownership is an important foundation to the economy and provides stability in rural communities. Available housing is important in supporting employers in the community, provides a place “where jobs sleep” and allows families to live and raise their families in communities where they work.  
State and federal partners, community officials, lenders, realtors, major employers, home builders and other housing partners will convene for the meeting. Families that are interested in living in rural communities and owning their own home or existing home owners who need assistance with home repairs are encouraged to attend.
A representative from USDA Rural Development will be available to discuss programs that offer up to 100 percent financing for a home purchase.  Financing is available with interest rates at 3 percent and below, and households may qualify for rates as low as 1 percent.  
These affordable rates with no or a low down payment makes home ownership affordable and may be less than rent.  Low interest rate loans at 1 percent are also available for home repairs for existing home-owners for low income household.  Grants are available for elderly households 62 years of age or older for home repairs that are unable to repay a loan.
For further information contact Aurora Chamber & Development Corporation Executive Director Barb Ernst at 402.694.6911.  To view upcoming meetings visit www.rd.usda.gov/ne click on red Alert at upper right of screen.
