There are several government agencies that may be able to help you but, be aware, these agencies take time to process and approve any application. Habitat for Humanity may be able to help and may also be faster in getting it approved.

You may be able to get help through your local church or maybe one of your local companies (you may have to call around and see what is available).

Here are a couple of links to get you started.

I would go to HUD.org and look at resources for your state. Habitat for Humanity and local churches can help, too.
