Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to show support to first responders. On Monday, DeSantis announced a plan to help Floridians in more than 50 critical professions purchase their first home; it’s called the Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program.
“The new initiative will be available to state law enforcement officers, firefighters, educators, healthcare professionals, childcare employees, and active military or veterans as part of the $100 million program,” The Daily Wire reports.
“In Florida, we value the contributions of our police, firefighters, teachers, and nurses,” DeSantis said on Monday.
“Our hometown heroes are the backbone of Florida communities and making sure that they can afford to be homeowners is a great way to give back to them and support the future of the American Dream,” he added.
“Florida Housing is extremely grateful to those who have remained committed to serving their communities, especially during these challenging financial times,” Trey Price, Executive Director of Florida Housing Finance Corporation said at the event.
“Hometown Heroes will provide the financial assistance necessary to help these hardworking individuals finally achieve the American Dream of homeownership, and we look forward to the positive impacts this accomplishment will have on so many Florida families,” he added.
