  Homeownership Next Step



Next Step

Homebuyer Program



Basic Information:


bulletThe Next Step Program allows Missouri citizens the opportunity to continue their quest for homeownership.
bulletThe Next Step Program enables non-first time homebuyers who lack sufficient equity or funds for downpayment to purchase their new home.
bulletThe Next Step Program provides incentives for homebuyers to move into ”Opportunity Areas” throughout Missouri. Opportunity Areas will be defined by census tract of the property being purchased. Borrowers will receive a slightly better interest rate if purchasing a home in an opportunity area.

The Next Step Program benefits Missouri borrowers in several ways:

Bridges the gap between lack of equity and downpayment needed to purchase their next home.
Allow first-time buyers who fall outside the income limits for the First Place Program to achieve homeownership.
Encourage qualified borrowers to move into “Opportunity Areas” with downpayment and closing cost assistance.
