Palm Beach County’s
Veterans Homeownership and Preservation Program

Are you an Active Duty U.S. Military Personnel, Veteran or Surviving Spouse?
Do you need assistance to purchase a home in Palm Beach County?
Do you need minor home repair assistance for a new or existing home?
You need not be discouraged, there may be a program specifically designed with you in mind. The Veteran’s Homeownership and Preservation Program (VHPP) is a pilot program administered by the Department of Economic Sustainability.
To be eligible you must be a:
□ U.S. Military Personnel, Veteran or Surviving Spouse;
□ Reside in the home as your primary residence; and have a
□ Household income at 80% or below annual median income.

The decision to purchase a home is likely the biggest expense you will ever incur. You have already done the most difficult part, becoming credit ready, paying-off debt, accumulating savings and sacrificing to ensure you and your family start homeownership right. But, like many first-time buyers, you’ve discovered that the costs to purchase a home is much more expensive than you initially thought or maybe you found the perfect home but, it requires repairs. The VHPP offers homebuyer down-payment assistance, closing-cost and minor repair assistance to active duty military personnel, veterans and surviving spouses to purchase and repair a new or existing home.

This program is funded through an innovative partnership of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta and Palm Beach County.
