WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A national program to help people who serve buy homes made its way to Wilmington today.
Homes for Heroes provides rebates and discounts to everyday heroes including active and retired military, police officers, firefighters, teachers, nurses and community volunteers. The program has just become available in our area.
Local affiliate Don Harris said he does not know why people would not want to get involved.
"I think any time that you can help our heroes and give them an incentive to buy a house in the greatest market ever, plus give them some cash back at closing, why wouldn't anyone want to do that?" Harris said.
Harris said the people this program helps are the backbone of our community, and they deserve to be honored in this way. He hopes more area businesses will get involved with the program.
