Welcome to Homes For Homecoming Heroes

Homes For Our Homecoming Heroes, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) voluntary charitable trust whose mission is to build housing for veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Qualified veterans will be selected by lottery. With a good credit history and a household income of at least $44,000 and a maximum of $72,000, a veteran will qualify for this program. The veteran will purchase the home with a 1% downpayment and a 3.5% thirty-year fixed mortgage offered through the State of New York Mortgage Agency. They also offer assistance with the down payment and closing costs up to $10,000. A forgivable second mortgage will be placed for the appraised value of the house, and will run concurrent with the first mortgage. 

The price of these homes will be determined by the cost of the land and construction. Hopefully, we will be able to deliver an approximately 1500 square foot home with a garage, where possible. We'll build these homes with professional construction managers who will supervise the trade unions, volunteer organizations and BOCES school students. Several companies have offered in kind donations of materials. 

Wells Fargo Bank will be securing the permanent mortgages. They will also provide construction financing if needed. 

At this point in time we are looking for parcels of land to begin this project. Please let us know if you can assist us in any way to acquire this land. 

Thank you for your assistance. We hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.
