Resources for Financing

If you don’t have the cash to buy and improve the vacant structures and lots available through the Vacant Housing Recycling Program, there are financing resources that can help.

For Owner Occupants: Check out the Vacant Housing Recycling Program’s Resident Resources guide! Pre-purchase counseling, grants for homebuyers, and first mortgage financing specifically designed for purchase/construction projects are all outlined in the guide.

For Developers or Investors: Developers are encouraged to connect with the Twin Cities Community Land Bank to learn about loan and grant programs that can increase your capacity.
