JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Home ownership may soon become a reality for dozens of families in the Jackson area.

And it's all thanks to a new grant program unveiled today. It's called the Home Buyer Advantage Program.

Qualified homeowners receive a grant for up to half of the home's value.

The houses are older homes that are newly renovated and located in north, west, and south Jackson.

To qualify, the prospective owner must meet certain income limits and financing requirements.

Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber says this program is another step in bringing new life to Jackson neighborhoods.

If you're interested in learning more about the Home Buyer Advantage Program, you're encouraged to go to New Horizon Church on Ellis Avenue from 10 am to 2 pm Saturday.

You can talk to realtors and lenders to see if you pre-qualify for the money and tour some of the homes.
