2015 HUD Median Income for West Virginia

Young home buyers

Could you use up to $5,000 for down payment and or closing cost assistance to purchase a home in West Virginia?

Dumb question I know, but it’s true. The Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh offers grant money for qualified homebuyers. That’s right, free grant money for the closing costs and or down payment. The Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh does not require repayment unless the home is sold or refinanced within 5 years. The grant money is then prorated. There is no monthly payment. The maximum grant is $5,000!

The home buyer(s) household income must be at or below 80% of the median West Virginia county income. See below. Read more about the First Front Door Grant program at AnytimeEstimate.com

Median income divides the West Virginia county households into two equal groups, half of the households have income above the median income, and half of the households have income below the median income. You'll notice that the chart below also references the income by household members.

Median household income is used for determining eligibility for low to moderate mortgage programs, also known as CRA (Community Reinvestment Act). If you believe your household income meets the income limits below, you may find "special" financing with West Virginia
