Buying a home in a Targeted Area?

Certain areas of Connecticut are designated "targeted areas" based on IRS guidelines . If you purchase a home in a federally designated "targeted area," you will receive an additional 0.25% discount on CHFA's published interest rate.  The first-time homebuyer* requirement is waived.   Borrowers cannot combine the Target Area discount with any other discount rate.

*A first-time homebuyer is also defined as someone who has not owned a home in the past three years.
