(Excerpt from an Article in the September 2011 Realtor® Magazine)

Active duty personnel, veterans, retired members of the
military, and employees of the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of
Homeland Security are eligible to apply for up to $5,000.00 in down payment and
closing costs in the purchase of a first home.
The national nonprofit Pentagon Federal Credit Union Foundation is
offering the assistance through its Dream Makers program and says the grants
can be applied to a mortgage from any financial institution.  More info is at http://www.pentagonfoundation.org/.  Click on the “Dream Makers” link.
