About Good Neighbor Next Door Program
The Good Neighbor Next Door Program is a program designed to encourage renewal of revitalization areas in order to help and promote home ownership. HUD offers these homes to Law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade public teachers who, may bid on homes in community revitalization areas. HUD offers a discount of 50% from the list price of the home. You must commit to live and occupy the property for 36 months as your sole residence.
All participants must be employed full-time by a state, county, Indian tribal government, federal, municipality, parish, a state accredited public/private school or division of local government. You may not have participated and obtained a home previously through the GNND program or past programs such as Teacher Next Door or Officer Next Door. If any of these situations apply to you or your spouse then you will not be eligible for the GNND program but may qualify for other HUD and various other homes and programs.
