$5,000 Grant for First-Time Military Buyers

Making Homes More Affordable for Military Families

The Pentagon Federal Credit Union Foundation, , a non-profit organization that helps meet the needs of military personnel and their families, has developed the Dream Makers Program to offer financial aid to first-time military home buyers.

The $5,000 grant, which can be used towards down-payments and closing costs on the home, is available for active duty personnel, veterans and retired military members, as well as employees of the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.

The program ensures that the people who have helped serve our country, past or present, now have help in buying their first home.

The foundation has had fewer veterans apply for the grant in recent years, due to the economy and lack of awareness about the program. They have made it their mission to make sure as many active duty members and veterans know about the Dream Makers Program as possible. Please share this with anyone you know who may be eligible.

This program is a great service for our nation’s military personnel who are finally able to purchase a home and settle down.
