Community Development Housing Programs
The Town's Department of Community Development has many different Housing Programs to assist its residents and even non-residents. If you are looking to buy your first home, the Town of Hamburg has its "First Time Home Buyer" program, which conditionally grants up to $10,000 in to purchase an existing home within the Town of Hamburg (includes the Villages of Blasdell & Hamburg as well as Lakeview, Woodlawn, etc.). For specific details of the First Time Home Buyer "conditional" grant program, please go to the Community Development department website under "Municipal Departments" or click on the following link to go directly to the application for the program: Application-PY-2018-FTHB-Original.hhp
If you already own your own home within the town and are looking to complete repairs to that home, the Town of Hamburg has its "Housing Renovation Loan program". No or low interest loans of up to $7,500 are available. Interest rates of 0%, 2.0% or 4% are available based upon an applicant's income. Income limits vary per family size. You can go to the specific program application at the following link: Application-PY-2018-HR-Loan-Grant.hud
If you own your own "Mobile Home", the Town of Hamburg has a "Mobile Home Renovation Loan" program available for your use. The income guidelines are similar to the Housing Renovation program. Incomes and family sizes are similar, but the loan interest rates are slightly different. When funding is available, loans of up to $5,000 are available at a interest rate either 1%, 2.5% or 4%. The maximum pay-back for a loan is sixty (60) months. Check your family size and income limit within the application which is available at the following link: Application-PY-2018-Mobile-Home.hud
