    No. Felons have to struggle to buy homes along with the rest of the population.

    You do what everyone else does.. you rent a place until you save up enough for a down payment. Nobody else gets free money to buy a house... why should someone who broke the law.

    I really don't understand the mentality. Why should a felon be given something that the rest of us work our arses off for?

    I guess it's the same as the welfare mentality.

    No, there is no special funding, in fact, if they were convicted of some drug crimes, they will not qualify for all of the other grants and loans that may be available. ** some special offers,

    Another example of Jailhouse lawyering! I might become a felon if I could get all the things people believe they can get-Free education, money to start a business, help with a house purchase etc. Who suggested you could get such?
