I went to grants.gov to register with them so that i could apply for a gov. grant.
When i tried i saw that i needed to know the specific grant number-
does anyone know the specific name and number of the grant i need to apply for to buy my first home for my family?

If not, any suggestions of other options would be great.
Thanks!

    The Housing and Urban Development in their Grants Available page makes it clear that they do not provide grants to individuals — hence no grants for a person to buy a home http://www.hud.gov/grants/index.cfm

    ————————————
    “While HUD does not offer direct grants or loans to individuals, we do work through local governments and non-profit organizations to make financial assistance and counseling available.”

    You have to go to Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance http://www.cfda.gov and search for grants on homeownership. CFDA contains listing of grants and you need the CFDA grant number to download the correct grant application at Grants.gov

    However there are no first time homebuyers grant. Here is the list of grants on homeownership including the numbers
