According to the Texas State Association of Fire Fighters, there are more than 15,000 professional firefighters in the state of Texas.
In honor of National Fire Prevention Week (which starts on Sunday), we would like to thank these dedicated professionals for their service to Texas families and communities.

Home Buyer Programs for Firefighters
Firefighters risk their lives every day to protect our homes, and they deserve the opportunity to achieve the American dream of homeownership.
Through our Homes for Texas Heroes Program, TSAHC provides low-interest loans, down payment assistance grants and mortgage tax credits to professional fire fighters and other Texas heroes. In the past two years alone, we have helped more than 1,180 professional firefighters and other Texas heroes become homeowners. Click here to learn more about the types of assistance available.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Good Neighbor Next Door program also assists firefighters by providing significant discounts on HUD- owned homes in specific targeted areas. This program can be used in combination with TSAHC’s Homes for Texas Heroes program to make homeownership even more affordable for qualified firefighters.
