Targeted and Non-Targeted Areas

 

What is the Difference Between Targeted and Non-Targeted Areas?

A targeted area is an economically distressed area designated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Special incentives are given for applicants purchasing homes in federally designated Targeted Areas. Some of these incentives are:

  • You can make more income and purchase more home since the Household Income and home Purchase Price Limits are higher. Click here to see Household Income and Purchase Price Limits per county.
  • Mortgage Credit Certificates are available for non-first time homebuyers if they are buying a home in a Targeted Area.

First Time Homebuyer is someone who has not had ownership in a principal residence three years from the date of closing. .
