I S MY CLIENT PURCHASING IN A TARGETED AREA?
Do you know how to verify if a property is in an area that meets down payment assistance eligibility? You may have a client who isn’t a first-time homebuyer but is is eligible because they are purchasing in a targeted county or a targeted census tract. Your client may be purchasing in a designated ZIP code that is eligible for $15,000 HHF DPA. 

THDA’s Research and Planning Division has created an interactive map to help you verify a specific property’s eligibility. You can find the map on the THDA website on either the Lender page or the Realtor page . On either page, go down to the bottom under Resource Links and click on “Targeted Areas”. Here are a few tips to help you navigate like an expert:

  • If you are looking up a specific address, you may enter it in the search bar. 

  • ZIP Codes eligible for HHF-DPA down payment assistance are shown in orange.

  • ZIP Codes eligible for HHF-DPA down payment assistance, but whose eligibility ends after June 30, 2019, are shown in green.

  • To verify that a particular ZIP code is eligible for HHF-DPA, click on the orange or green ZIPs shown on the map, and a pop-up box should appear, confirming that it is an eligible HHF-DPA ZIP.

  • Zoom in for precise selection. From a zoomed-out extent, selector may show a ZIP code as "1 of 2", "1 of 3", or more. This is a function of the cursor, and does not have implications for HHF-DPA Eligibility.




REMINDER: REMOVAL OF ZIP CODES FOR HHF-DPA

ZIP Codes listed below will be removed from the HHF-DPA Program and no longer eligible for the $15,000 down payment assistance funds effective July 1, 2019. Complete loan applications must be submitted to THDA by June 30, 2019.
