Some public housing agencies help you become a homeowner through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program. And help Housing Choice Voucher holders buy a home. This program provides an option for eligible tenants to use their Section 8 HCV voucher for homeownership assistance rather than for rental assistance. This program is to promote and encourage homeownership, self-sufficiency, and in time, complete independence of government assistance. Contact your local housing agency to find out if they are participating in the homeownership program.
In addition to the federal rental assistance, homeownership and home buying assistance programs, there may be programs sponsored by your state or local government or other organizations that can help you.
