Work for a major employer in Greeley? You might already qualify for down payment assistance — and you could soon qualify for more. Citing housing prices, city council discussed at a work session this past week expanding the Greeley Home Ownership Program for Employees program. At the July 26 work session, Benjamin Snow, Greeley's director of Economic Health and Housing, presented to council two ways to expand the program: dollar amount and geography. As it stands, the program funding works like this: Zone 1, east of 8th Avenue, can qualify for $6,000 in assistance Zone 2, between 8th and 11th avenues, can qualify for $4,000 in assistance Zone 3, west of 11th Avenue, can qualify for $2,500 in assistance The system is designed to reward people for buying in the east Greeley area.
