New Jersey HomeSeeker

New Jersey HomeSeeker

The New Jersey HomeSeeker Program provides $10,000 for first-time homebuyers and veterans to use as downpayment and/or closing cost assistance when purchasing a home in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Essex, Gloucester, Mercer, Passaic or Union counties. The funds are provided as a 0% interest loan that is forgiven in five years.

To participate in HomeSeeker, homebuyers must obtain first mortgage financing through the NJHMFA's Homeward Bound mortgage program.
