Homeownership

FWHS is proud of its history of promoting homeownership. Owning a home gives residents a stake in their community and instills a sense of pride in the neighborhood. In partnership with the City of Fort Worth and other community partners and lenders, FWHS is equipped to provide employment, educational, and other ancillary services that help rebuild lives and accomplish goals. FWHS also offers financial assistance and homeownership education and counseling to low and moderate-income first-time homebuyers.

Fort Worth Housing Solutions (FWHS) has established a homeownership program. Eligible participants in the tenant-based rental assistance program may have an opportunity to be homeowners and use their tenant-based voucher for mortgage expenses. Mortgage expenses include principal, interest, taxes, homeowners insurance, and a utility allowance. FWHS has entered into an agreement with the City of Fort Worth Housing Department to administer the necessary homeownership training and counseling, which includes sessions on owning a home, credit repair, budgeting, home financing, etc.
