Qualified homebuyers may be eligible to receive money to help them buy a foreclosed or short-sale property in the city of Bend, according to a news release.
The funding, which comes through the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program, is meant to stabilize neighborhoods and communities going through high rates of foreclosure, said Sheila Pyott, program coordinator.
“It brings homeowners back to the neighborhood," she said.
Up to $35,000 in funding is available for buyers of owner-occupied homes, not for investment or rental properties, she said. Funding is limited to specific areas of the city, most of which are on the east side, according to program maps. To view the maps or find more information, visit bendoregon.gov/nsp.
