My First Texas Home
Effective October 2012, TDHCA announced the release of $600 million in homebuyer assistance — the largest amount ever offered by the state — through a new mortgage-backed securities initiative that provides qualifying borrowers a number of advantages over the Department’s previous single family bond program.
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.
