Governor Ron DeSantis announced the June 1 launch of the Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program to help Floridians in over 50 critical professions purchase their first home.  Professions include law enforcement officers, firefighters, educators, healthcare professionals, childcare employees and active military or veterans.  The program will aid essential community workers in eligible professions with down payment and closing cost assistance to help first-time, income-qualified homebuyers purchase a primary residence in the communities they serve.

Funds will be available to reserve starting June 1, which coincides with National Homeownership Month.
