Loan program for soldiers extended

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A program to help soldiers get loans to purchase homes has gotten a permanent extension.

The Leaf-Chronicle (leafne.ws/10MampM) reports officials gathered recently at Fort Campbell to announce that the Tennessee Homeownership for the Brave program will be permanently extended.

The sprawling Army post on the Kentucky-Tennessee border has a multitude of military families.

The program helps soldiers and veterans get loans at reduced rates. It has been a pilot program for two years, but the Tennessee Housing Development Agency says it has decided to keep the initiative.
