NeighborWorks Lincoln


Homebuyer Assistance

When you are ready to buy your home, NeighborWorks Lincoln is here to assist. We have several different programs available depending on each consumer’s situation. We help consumers with down payment, closing costs, and property rehabilitation through the use of special financing.

Clients using our program must have positive credit and employment history to be able to obtain a first mortgage. They will also need to have a minimum of $500 to $1,000 of their own funds to purchase a home using our program.

Our Program Guidelines change periodically based on various factors such as available funding and need. Please call our office for further information on current Program Guidelines; (402) 477-7181.

There are 2 focus areas in Lincoln where assistance funding may be greater than in the city as a whole. The Low to Moderate Income Area (LMI) is derived by the Census Bureau and is based on median income levels. The Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) is derived by the City of Lincoln based on the desire for additional single-family housing. These 2 areas’ street addresses are available at the web addresses below. They are arranged by street number first and then alphabetically.
