CONCORD, CA, March 8, 2016: Land Home Financial Services, Inc. (Land Home) in partnership with National Homebuyers Fund, Inc. (NHF) launched NHF Sapphire, a nationwide down payment assistance program aimed at boosting homeownership levels throughout the country.
“Teaming up with NHF has been a goal of this organization for a long time. Every American deserves the opportunity to achieve the dream of homeownership–we took a big step in that direction today,” said Brad Waite, President and CEO of Land Home.
NHF is a non-profit public benefit corporation established in 2002 to stimulate and expand homeownership opportunities across the nation. NHF has helped more than 26,600 individuals and families purchase a home, firmly establishing themselves as a proven champion for affordable and responsible homeownership.
"NHF's partnership and collaboration with Land Home Financial Services is exciting and speaks to our shared commitment to help low and moderate income families get into homes, stabilize neighborhoods and strengthen communities. Lack of down payment funds is a common reality for many homebuyers and it is critical that we have strong lenders, such as LHFS, to support the bridge between affordable housing programs and the individual families and households who need them," said NHF Vice President Craig Ferguson.
