My First Texas Home (TMP 79)

My First Texas Home’s "Taxable Mortgage Program" (TMP-79) offers more competitive fixed interest and annual percentage rates while providing down payment and closing cost assistance of 5 percent of the mortgage loan.

Plus, TMP funds can be combined with the Department’s Mortgage Credit Certificate Program, further increasing the home’s affordability. The program features a number of other benefits homebuyers will find attractive; however, current eligibility guidelines still apply.
