IHT will hold buyer seminar for Lake Street affordable houses


The Island Housing Trust will hold a homebuyer informational session at 5 pm, Monday, Nov. 14 at the Vineyard Housing Office at 346 State Road in Vineyard Haven.

The session is offered as part of the application process for four affordable energy efficient homes on Lake Street being administered by the Dukes County Regional Housing Authority, according to a press release. The application deadline is Friday, December 2.

As part of the homebuyer forum, a USDA Rural Development representative will present information on government loans at subsidized rates and terms that allow very low and low-income homebuyers (and home builders) the opportunity to obtain housing with no down payment, IHT said. More information on the USDA Rural Housing Direct Loans can be found at rurdev.usda.gov.

Those interested in applying for the green affordable homes on Lake Street or the USDA government loans are invited to attend. Call 508-693-4419 for applications or more information.
