Ray and Connie Moeller bought their Morgantown home during the pandemic using the West Virginia Housing Development Fund’s Homeownership Program and Low Down Home Loan. They regularly drink their morning coffee on the home’s screened-in porch, which overlooks the backyard.

The West Virginia Housing Development Fund offers affordable mortgage loans to finance the purchase of a home or offers help to most homeowners if they choose to refinance. Individuals and families can find affordable options offered by the Fund through our partnership with over 60 banks, financial lenders and institutions and non-profit housing agencies throughout the state.  Although we welcome any inquiry you might have, we suggest potential home buyers contact a lender in their area to discuss options and how they could benefit from a loan through the Fund. Once you and your lender have established that a Fund loan is right for you, your loan will be serviced at our office in Charleston.
