Are you a first time home buyer that plans to reside in South Carolina? Are you a teacher, firefighter, law enforcement officer, or a member of South Carolina's EMS Personnel?

With the Palmetto State Heroes Program and The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, QUALIFIED  First Time Home Buyers could receive close to $15,000 in down payment assistance, closing costs and/or tax credits.

"Palmetto Heroes is available to teachers, law enforcement officers, firefighters and EMS personnel who are currently certified in their profession, and reside and work in South Carolina or have a contract to begin working here within 60 days of closing on a home." -- South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority Website

"It's important that we salute these Palmetto State heroes and invest in them," said T. Scott Smith of Sullivan's Island, principle and president of WRS Real Estate Investments, and SC State Housing's Chairman of the Board.

PLEASE NOTE --- The South Carolina State Housing offered a similar program in 2008. Funding only lasted for SIX WEEKS! Furthermore, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has an APRIL 30, 2010 DEADLINE.
