MIRAMAR, FL - The City of Miramar received funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA). HERA included a foreclosure-related financial assistance program known as the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) which was intended to address the effects of the housing foreclosure crisis.
Over the years, the City acquired, rehabilitated, and sold several properties. The City used remaining NSP funds to purchase and rehabilitate two additional properties which are now available for sale to income qualified households. The sale will be done through a lottery process with down payment assistance from the City of up to $140,000.
Miramar’s Community Development Director, Eric Silva stated, “Giving our residents access to affordable housing is very important to create stability for families. These homes will be available to very low-income families and are very affordable especially with financial assistance from the City. The NSP Program has greatly benefited our community and this is another great opportunity for two more families to find a place to call home.”
Applicants who meet the income qualification of 50% AMI based on household size, can be entered into the lottery to purchase one of the following homes:
