April 28: Home Ownership Seminar

The City of Aurora has partnered with the Quad County Urban League and several local businesses to assist people with purchasing their own home at a free seminar.

The Steps to Homeownership Workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 28 at the Quad County Urban League, 1685 N. Farnsworth Ave., Aurora. The program will be offered in both English and Spanish.

The Joseph Corp. will provide homebuyer counseling to seminar participants, Consumer Credit Counseling Service will discuss personal financial management strategies, and BMO Harris N.A. Bank and the Illinois Housing Development Authority will present information about down payment assistance and incentive programs. Representatives from Old Second National Bank, Chase, MB Financial Bank, Citibank and Re/Max Suburban also will be on hand to answer questions about financing home purchases.

Information about purchasing City-owned homes that have been rehabbed will be a featured topic at the seminar. The City was able to buy and renovate homes after receiving a $3 million federal stimulus grant designed to stabilize neighborhoods and create jobs.

The first 20 attendees at the seminar will receive a $20 voucher for groceries from Cermak Foods in Aurora. Program registration is not required.

For more information about the seminar, call the City’s Neighborhood Redevelopment Division at 630-256-3320 .
