How To Apply
The first step is to take our quick online Eligibility Quiz. This quiz will tell you whether you’re eligible for our assistance.
If you are eligible, the quiz will then direct you to contact a participating lender in your area. The lender will help you fill out the application. You will not submit anything directly to TSAHC.
You will also be required to complete an approved home buyer education course before closing on your home. And while we don’t require you to work with a specific REALTOR®, you can also use this search tool to find a REALTOR® familiar with our programs.
For Lenders and REALTORS®
TSAHC has created new co-brandable flyers to help you promote Homes for Texas Heroes to each profession.
