On Saturday, June 25, Harris County Housing Authority (HCHA) helped two Housing Choice Voucher Program participants who attended HCHA’s Homeownership Fair become pre-approved for home loans and will also have helped a third family find approval from another lender by the end of the week.

At the fair, Housing Choice Voucher  Program participants learned how to use their vouchers to pay a portion of their monthly mortgage note for up to 15 years, allowing them the opportunity to build home equity instead of years of rental payments.
