State Representative Carl Gilliard (D-Garden City), along with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA), will host a Georgia Dream Program session on Monday, June 25, 2018, at 10 a.m. at the First Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church, 4370 Acl Boulevard in Savannah.
The Georgia Dream Program, a homeownership program through DCA, provides $15,000 in down payment assistance to approved applicants. To qualify, applicants must have a Beacon score of at least 624, and DCA will work with individuals who do not qualify to reach this required score.
Since Rep. Gilliard brought the Georgia Dream Program to the Savannah area over a year ago, the program has provided 130 individuals with down payment assistance, all of whom purchased homes in Chatham County. Of the 130 people that received assistance, 100 were women and 128 were first-time home buyers.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please contact Rep. Gilliard’s local office at 912- 436-5325.
