HCVP Homeownership Program

HANO offers a Homeownership Voucher Program to Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) tenants which allows participants to apply their Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) to monthly mortgage payments. This option is limited to first-time homebuyers, meaning buyers that have not owned a home in three years, and to buyers who meet other minimum eligibility requirements.

The HAP is considered as additional income, thereby increasing a family’s ability to qualify for a home mortgage loan. Generally no more than 40% of the homebuyer’s monthly gross income is applied toward the mortgage payment of principal, interest, taxes and insurance payments (PITI). The HCVP HAP contribution can be utilized to pay the difference between the actual mortgage and the portion that can be paid by the homebuyer.
