Housing Connection
September 2018
Building communities together.

TSAHC believes in the power of education and building capacity for our nonprofit housing partners. Through our Housing Connection, we want to help affordable housing and counseling organizations access trainings, promote themselves, build capacity as well as provide a network where best practices can be shared. 
Monthly Spotlight:

On September 4th, TSAHC will roll out a new 5% down payment assistance product that offers a MUCH lower interest rate on the HFA Preferred Conventional loan. The down payment assistance will be in the form of a repayable 2nd lien with 0% interest and no monthly payments due. Stay tuned!
