    There are no grants on a federal level. NC might have some, your lender would know about them, if they exist.

    No, there are no federal grants to help buy a house. There are programs through the FHA that will help you buy a house for minimal amounts down (3.5% plus closing costs), but you still need the deposit and decent credit.

    I am being respectful, if you can’t afford to purchase with money you earned, then you shouldn’t be buying a home. It’s not your right to own a home, it a privilege. Right now I can’t buy a home either. I don’t have the money.

    No, there are no such federal grants. You might find some state or municipal money designated to encourage buying in target areas (translated-run down), but that is the extent of same. Otherwise, you might be entitled to the first time home buyer tax credit, but that expires at the end of April.

    Not that I have heard of. But you could contact lenders in your area to see if any local programs exist. But if there are local programs, expect them to be very competitive and therefore, you should not count on that.
