Homebuyers choose their homes, so long as the property is located within the City of Houston and meets safety and quality standards. The City can assist with down payments, closing costs, or principle buydown, depending on the buyer’s needs.
The City then provides a no-interest, forgivable loan, secured by a lien. The loan is fulfilled if the buyer lives in the home for 5 years. If the buyer sells or moves out of the home before that time, they reimburse the City for only a prorated portion of the original loan amount.
To apply, first fill out the Harvey Recovery Survey.
Housing Resource Centers
The City operates Housing Resource Centers (HRCs) throughout Houston. These are physical locations where residents can access recovery resources and work with a housing specialist in person. The HRCs will open on January 14, 2019. Mobile Outreach Teams are also available to participate in events or visit specific locations.
