Workshop set for first-time buyers
Webster Bank, 524 Campbell Ave., will hold a first-time homebuyers workshop from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday.
The workshop, in cooperation with the West Haven Community Development Administration, will discuss CDA’s down payment assistance program for first-time homebuyers.
To qualify for the forgivable loan program, applicants must buy a single-family house or condominium in West Haven and live in the home for five years. The loan is abated 20 percent annually and forgiven after the fifth year.
Eligibility for assistance is based on the income and number of members of an applicant’s household, according to guidelines of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Applicants must provide 3 percent of the purchase price from their own funds, and CDA will match $2 for every dollar up to $7,500.
Open enrollment topic of talk
A representative from the Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut will discuss the 2019 Medicare Open Enrollment from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Nov. 20 at the Allingtown/West Haven Senior Center, 201 Noble St.
Attendees will learn about any changes and plan offerings for next year.
