To qualify, you must be a first-time homebuyer, use the home as your primary residence and meet certain income requirements. Members of the military also must provide verification of service, and they will receive a waiver for the issuance fee if they have a New Hampshire Housing loan. Those who do not use New Hampshire Housing for their loan may receive a discount.
