Homeownership Across Texas            Grant Program  12.23.2014

The Lubbock Housing Finance Corporation, in partnership with the Southeast Texas Housing Finance Corporation, is pleased to make the HAT Grant Program available in most communities throughout the State.

Featuring Down Payment and Closing Cost Grants

   Totaling up to 5% of your Loan Amount!

When purchasing a home, it's always best to save and use your own money to cover the down payment and closing costs.  Doing so, and having good credit, will allow you to get the best financing terms.  But if you find that you haven't saved enough to pay all of the costs related to buying a home, the Homeownership Across Texas Grant Program may be of benefit to you.  

 

Eligibility for the loan and GRANT is based on: 

Ø the property you wish to purchase being located anywhere in Texas with the exception of El Paso, Grand Prairie and McKinney;

Ø the income being used to qualify you for a home loan being less than or equal to 115% of Area Median Income for the County in which the home is located; Click Here for Income Levels

Ø the sales price of the home you buy being less than or equal to: 

    $250,200  (FHA, VA and USDA loans)

    $324,000 (Conventional loans)

Ø you occupying the home as your principal residence; and

Ø your ability to qualify for FHA, VA, Conventional or USDA financing.

And you don't have to be a first-time homebuyer!

 

The following costs may be paid with GRANT funds:

ØDown payment

ØClosing Costs (including fees for appraisal, credit
