Rep. Gilliard hosts Georgia Dream Program session in Savannah

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - State Representative Card Gilliard and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs hosted a session about the 'Georgia Dream Program' on Friday.

The program is designed to give low-income residents the opportunity to become homeowners.

"Many times, potential homeowners can afford a home but they can't afford the down payment," said Cynthia Harrison, Housing Outreach Coordinator. "Every time they save up money, something happens and they don't have the down payment anymore."

The session gives residents an opportunity to learn how to raise their Beacon Score and qualify for down payment assistance up to $15,000.
