First Time Homebuyer Program serves extremely low-, very low-, low- and moderate-income families. A buyer is not required to live in Tamarac in order to qualify for this program, but the property being bought must be in Tamarac. Eligible applicants are also allowed to use funds from other loan programs in conjunction with the City's loan program.

Home Rehabilitation Program gives priority to repairs that address code deficiencies and health/safety hazards. Items covered are as follows, but not limited to: faulty or exposed electrical, holes in the roof, broken windows and plumbing. Additional items may be covered if funding allows. Condos are only eligible for the Housing Rehabilitation Program for items that are not the responsibility of the condo association. Contractors will be selected from the City's list of qualified contractors. This is an income-qualifying program for which the State has set limits, based on household size. Once the City receives your completed application, the average processing time is 4 - 6 weeks.
