housing grants to buy a home for a low income family?

My family is low income and we badly need to move. Our current landlord won’t fix our place without raising our rent, even though it has been deemed a hazard by the health and human services.

We found a cheap farm with a few acres and are looking for a housing grant. We can’t get a loan, we need a free grant. Is there anything like that out there??

I’ve looked online but all I can find are scams. Help??

How do we go about buying a house on a lower income?

My fiance and I are trying to find and buy our first home. We are getting married in March and would like to have a home of our own. We are both fairly young and do not have a large income. He has taken on the responsibility of raising my two daughters with me and is our main source of income. We know there are ways out there for low income families to buy homes but have not been successful in finding those sources on our own. Rent in our area is very high so we are currently living with his parents. We would greatly appreciate all suggestions or help anyone can give us!!!!

How to get into a house with marginal credit but a good income?

I am married with a combined income of $125,000/yr. We filed a joint bankruptcy approximately 5 years ago. My wifes credit, while not extensive (3-4 Credit cards–nothing over 1,000 limit) is all good except for the Banko. I have not used credit in about 15 years with one exception and that was a small ($5K) loan which was paid on time.

I spent many years self-employed though I am now in a permanent position and have been for the past 7 months. My wife still contracts as I did, but may be taking a permanent position in the comming month as well. I also have an existing Federal tax lien (appx 15K).

It’s not at all pretty, but would like to know from any experts in the field if they have any ideas as I am really tired of throwing away 1500/mo in rent–thanks
Would the Federal tax lien HAVE to ...

Usda guaranteed rural home loan with limited proof of income?

Ok I have a credit score of 730 no debt bills paid on time. But prior to about 3 months ago I was working under the table. Now I work on the books and get about 2500 a month. I also have 3000 in the bank if that matters.
Any other loan I might qualify for would also be useful.
