Phoenix, AZ – March 13, 2009 – (RealEstateRama) — Potential homebuyers may qualify for $15,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance to help buy an affordable foreclosed single family home, townhouse or condominium in the city of Phoenix.

The city of Phoenix Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) Homeownership Assistance Program is offering two information sessions at 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday, March 16, at Phoenix City Council Chambers, 200 W. Jefferson St. to outline eligibility criteria.
