Tired of the rental scene, Kasey Tripp and her husband were ready to commit to home ownership. They were looking for options to decrease their down payment and closing costs.  They did not think they would qualify for assistance but were pleasantly surprised to learn that GROW South Dakota would assist them with their closing costs.

With the assistance they received, Kasey and her husband were able to use money they had in savings to make improvements on their new home.  They purchased new furniture for their home and installed a fence in the back yard just in time to welcome their first child. “We couldn’t be more excited about bringing our new son home to a place of our own,” stated Kasey.

Now that Kasey’s family is settled into their new home, they can continue to work on projects with some of the financial stress of home ownership alleviated. “We are so thankful for the assistance we received from GROW South Dakota.”
