Brandon Homebuyer Assistance Program Accepting Applications Until September


The City of Brandon is pleased to announce that applications for the Brandon Homebuyer Assistance Program are being accepted until Tuesday, September 5, 2023, at 5 p.m. Funding for this program is provided by the Manitoba Government.

For many first-time homeowners, one of the most difficult tasks is saving enough money for the down payment. Imagine if you could apply for a forgivable loan of up to almost $30,000.

The Brandon Homebuyer Assistance Program helps those who are eligible to become homeowners by providing funding equal to a 10% down payment and a portion of the associated closing costs by way of a forgivable loan. The maximum forgivable loan for an approved applicant is $29,250 over a 5-year period.
