Step Up helped Louisville's Kalvin Daffin find independence with a home purchase in his hometown. He said, “I got my nice home, and I also got peace of mind in knowing I’m not working just to take care of the house. I wanted something that allowed me to live outside of making my payments, and I have that."
Lacking savings and with student loan debt, Micah & Alyssa Long of Montgomery didn't believe homeownership was an option. Thanks to AHFA's Step Up financing, the Longs were able to purchase their first house - a home that has become the central location for their small group bible study. And, the monthly payment is less than they were paying in rent.
