Home Ownership Assistance Program


Snow Belt Housing Company, Inc. is administering a federally funded grant program that provides down payment, closing costs and repair assistance to income eligible applicants to purchase existing single-family homes anywhere in Lewis County. Single and/or doublewide mobile homes are not eligible for purchase assistance. Priority will be given to large families, single parent households, and households with special needs.


There is a ten (10) year affordability/residency requirement if you obtain a home through this program. The grant is transferable to another income eligible applicant. This is enforced by a Note and Mortgage filed with the Lewis County Clerk.

A HANDBOOK and APPLICATION can be found online here.  Applicants must also complete a homeownership training course offered by Neighbors of Watertown before they can receive any assistance.
