Quinn Boosts Funding For Veteran Housing Program


Governor Pat Quinn is pouring another $5 million into a program that has helped hundreds of veterans and active military personnel purchase homes. 

 

That brings the total to $20 million invested by the state in the “Welcome Home Heroes” program.  It provides $10,000 in assistance with down payment and closing costs, along with an affordable fixed-rate 30-year loan and tax credits. 

 

Sangamon County prosecutor and Navy veteran Jonas Harger says he and his wife could probably not have afforded their home in Springfield without the program.  [Quinn announced the additional funding in a news conference at Harger’s home Wednesday.]
