SCHEMES TARGETED AT LOW INCOME FAMILIES
Falkirk East MSP Angus MacDonald has today welcomed the announcement from the Scottish Government that it will invest more than £160 million in 2016-17 on schemes that will help 5,000 people across Scotland buy their first home.
Commenting, Angus MacDonald said:
“I am delighted that the SNP government will continue to help people in Falkirk district purchase their first home with £160 million of funding this year.
“This funding will be targeted at people on low incomes and will be vital for young people and their families looking to get on and up the housing ladder.
“These schemes don’t just boost homeownership but boost house building – creating jobs and supporting economic growth.
“Applications for the Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme open on March 1st and I would encourage eligible people in my Falkirk East constituency looking to buy their first home to apply.”
