The 2022 Spring Parade of Homes First-Time Homebuyer $10K Giveaway is now closed. Recipients have been notified.
The Parade of Homes wants to help you purchase your first home. Register for the Parade of Homes First-Time Homebuyer $10K Giveaway and you could win $10,000 toward your down payment to help you achieve the dream of homeownership.
The Parade of Homes has a proud legacy of providing homeownership opportunities for more than 70 years. For so many Minnesotans, the prospect of owning a home is tantalizingly close and within their means, but day-to-day expenses prevent them from saving enough to secure that initial down payment. Their dream of homeownership is just out of reach. In our continued commitment to expanding the opportunity for homeownership for everyone, everywhere in our state, we’re proud to provide the Parade of Homes First-Time Homebuyer $10K Giveaway!
