White Earth Investment Initiative offers down-payment and closing cost assistance loans to help reduce the amount of cash needed at the time of loan closing and also may help make monthly payments more affordable. These small loans are intended to accompany a larger home loan from the homeownership experts at Midwest Minnesota Community Development Corporation or other first mortgage providers. We also can provide smaller first-time homebuyer loans. All loans currently must be on fee simple land.
