Targeted Areas


The federal government has designated certain areas as “targeted areas” where more home ownership is desired. If you have clients interested in buying a home in these areas, there are typically more assistance programs available. They don’t need to be a first time homebuyer. Income and purchase price limits in targeted areas are also higher, which could open the door for additional buyers to qualify.

To determine if a particular property is located in a targeted area, please use the targeted area look-up map below. Simply enter the property address and the tool will identify the property’s location on the map with a dot (that may vary in color based on your device). If the property falls in a blue-shaded area, it is located in a targeted area. If the property falls in a green-shaded area, it is NOT in a targeted area.
