Help available for buying foreclosures
Those interested in buying a foreclosed home through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program can visit the county's Web site at www.hernandodownpayment.com. The site includes an application form, details about eligibility, a map of the areas where the homes are located and a list of frequently asked questions.

The county is still awaiting approval from the state to seek local businesses to assist in real estate and related areas such as contractors for home repairs, title companies and financial institutions.
