The Dream Of Home Ownership Meets
The Financial Tools To Get It Done...

My husband and I have tried to buy a home for 16 years. Either credit, money or both were the issues. We love our new home and are so grateful for the help we received from the Chenoa Fund.”

Our Mission

As a federally chartered, public-purpose driven governmental agency, we work to increase affordable and sustainable homeownership opportunities for creditworthy individuals who lack down payment funds.

Home Ownership Isn't For Everyone - But Housing Is

While we have minimum credit scores that may put some borrowers out of the reach of our direct assistance, we believe that through assisting creditworthy families to overcome the down payment assistance barrier we can reduce the competition for rental housing, which in turn helps to reduce its cost and increase its availability for those we cannot assist directly.
