Tips to having a down payment.
1.Create a budget and stick to it
2.Do without items you may want, but do not need.(You can live w/o the new Escalade, gold jewelery, the latest I phone and a 60" HD big screen TV)
3.Work a 2nd PT job
4.Avoid dining out and cook at home
5.Live below your means and save the difference

OR just expect others to pay your way through life

they do not actually give you the funds for down payment. they assist with finding resources and you still have to come out of pocket for the down payment

WHOSE money does the Piedmont Housing Alliance "have available" to give to help home buyers?

Yours, taxpayers. Yours. They just don't "have" money - money you earned working to support your family was taken to give to others.

Money doesn't just come from thin air, folks. I just thought I'd give the taxpayer a shout-out for once again supporting his/her family AND somebody else's.

And who pays for the program and staff salaries to provide the service? Are they all noble volunteers?

I didn't think so.

They do give. Say you buy a house for 200k, you can't afford it, right? but wait, if you are a minority or undocumented immigrant you can get a whopping 40K down payment from them, or more! so what you have is a 200K house for the price of 160K.
They pay the huge chunk of the down payment, and you pay a very very small percent. Very small.
