Last chance for free homebuyer workshop

The last in a series of free, one-hour workshops designed to educate the community about Chandler’s First Time Homebuyer Program takes place at the Chandler Community Center from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 13 in Room 201. The program is made possible by Chandler’s receipt of a federal grant to help income-qualified families rehabilitate and purchase foreclosed homes. The City partnered with the Newtown Community Development Corporation to help administer the program, which enables buyers of foreclosed Chandler homes to only pay for the cost of the home. The land is held in a trust to ensure the home remains affordable indefinitely. With this program, the purchase price is reduced because the buyer only has to afford the cost of the structure, not the land. Chandler Community Center is at 125 E. Commonwealth Ave. in downtown Chandler To register or learn more, contact Chandler’s Neighborhood Resources Division at 480-782-4320.
