Alliyah Hudson, 27, walked away from the 2024 Homeownership Fair with $10,000 for down payment and closing cost assistance. Hudson said that she was shaking with excitement when she heard her name called.

“I’ve been searching for a home since last year, and it's been a journey because they're so expensive, and I don't have the funds to, you know, just go buy a house or even put a deposit down on a house," Hudson, a single mother of 5, said.
