If you are a Housing Choice Voucher holder and have the desire to own a home of your own, the Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program may be right for you.

The Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program is a federally funded program that allows families with a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) that are enrolled in the Family Self-Sufficiency Program to use their voucher to purchase a home, rather than rent.

The HCV Homeownership Program is for first time homebuyers (a person whom does not own a home or have not owned a home during the past 3 years)

Participants in the HCV Homeownership Program are required to make a minimum down payment of 3% of the purchase price and that at least 1% of the purchase price comes from personal savings. The balance of the down payment may be advanced from the FSS Escrow Account, or may come from gifts or other sources.
