Below are the specific TSAHC DPA Mortgage Types available for Texas Home Buyers:

NON-BOND TSAHC DPA Mortgage Program

As stated above, the down payment assistance can be in the form of a grant. This means you do not have to pay it back. As long as you live in your home for at least six months, you will not need to pay the down payment assistance amount back.

TSAHC DPA Bond Mortgage Program

If you use the bond program, you may be subject to recapture tax if you sell your home within nine years of purchasing. Please click this link for more information – Recapture Tax


TSAHC DPA Mortgage offers down payment assistance as a repayable loan. You do not make payments on the down payment assistance portion, but the funds are due when you sell or refinance the property. The loan is given at 0% interest with zero monthly payments.

Texas Heroes Mortgage Program

Texas Heroes Home Loan program is similar to our Homes For Heroes Program at NEXA Mortgage, LLC, but only available in Texas. This program is for Texas residents(current or future) who work as teachers, police officers, correctional officers, firefighters/EMS personnel, AND all veterans.

This program is a 30-year fixed mortgage loan whose down payment is a GRANT or REPAYABLE SECOND LIEN LOAN.

You can get up to 6% of the loan for the down payment and closing costs. This program is available throughout the whole state but does have expanded income and purchase price limits in targeted areas. First-time home buyers can also apply for the mortgage credit certificate (MCC). Some restrictions apply.

TSAHC Home Sweet Texas Home Loan Program


This program is designed for low- and moderate-income levels. It is very similar to the Texas Heroes program above. A 30-year fixed mortgage with several rates and options available. It can also be a GRANT or REPAYABLE SECOND MORTGAGE. Up to 6% of the loan amount. You do not need to be a first-time home buyer. Contact us today for income limits in your area.

Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCC)

TSAHC offers a special tax credit to reduce a home buyer’s federal income tax liabilities yearly. This will help you instantly qualify for more homes for debt-to-income purposes. To receive a mortgage credit certificate, credit score, and DTI requirements are based on AUS. Please see our AUS BLOG – income limits to apply for more information on AUS. The Mortgage Credit Certificates are ONLY FOR FIRST-TIME HOME BUYERS. Please call us for more information.

  1. The lender I’m working with has my DTI maxed out to qualify me for the loan I need. I mentioned the Home Sweet Texas program and he said that this program could force them to lower my DTI which would mean less money I would be approved for. Do you know if the program requires a certain DTI or should I start looking for a new lender? Thank you for your time!
