Lenders, it’s time to get with the programs:
My First Texas Home
The lender approval process for My First Texas Home (TMP) is a shared process between the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs and our Master Servicer (US Bank, N.A.). If you are interested in participating in this program as a correspondent lender, begin the process by completing and sending to TDHCA the Request to Participate in the TDHCA Taxable Mortgage Program (TMP) (PDF). The request will be submitted to the Programs Master Servicer (US Bank, N.A.) for review.
Upon satisfactory review by the Master Servicer, the Mortgage Lender will be required to complete and submit to TDHCA the TMP – Program 79 Lender Application Package. The participation package will be forwarded to Lender upon approval with Master Servicer.
After the participation package is received and reviewed by TDHCA, lenders will be issued a Notice of Acceptance as official program approval.
All required documentation must be submitted to:
Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA)
Attn: Cathy Gutierrez – Texas Homeownership Division
221 E. 11th Street
Phone: (512) 475-0277
We encourage every lender to learn how to assist their borrower with the TDHCA My First Texas Home. Please visit our Lender Training page to learn about training available to our lender partners. Only those lenders that are approved for the program and have participated in training can provide assistance to qualifying borrowers and be listed on the Lenders List.
