The Military Housing Assistance Fund is another wonderful agency that is giving Military Families an amazing gift- a grant to pay their closing costs on a new home! Soldiers need only apply for thousands of dollars that they will never have to repay! The MHAF reports that military families are behind the national average in homeownership- only 28% of military families are currently homeowners. This organization was created to make ownership an option for military families who normally would avoid purchasing due to the large upfront costs.
There are very few requirements to use this benefit, and all of the information can be found here: http://www.usmhaf.org/
