HUD, as in Housing and Urban Development, has had such a program for years. Someone like a Fireman, Teacher, or Police Officer can buy a HUD owned home in the community where they live.

And, unlike the state's pilot program, the prospective home buyer is not limited to Wilmington, Raleigh, or Asheville.
