The Workforce Housing Program is the City of Houston’s Housing and Community Development Department’s new down payment assistance program available for qualified citizens. The WHP was created to provide Houston residents with the opportunity to purchase a new home in the Houston HOPE areas or any area/neighborhood designated by the Mayor of Houston for revitalization. Families whose combined annual gross income falls between 80 and 110 percent of the area’s median income will be provided with down payment, closing cost and pre-paid items assistance from the Workforce Housing Program. Each approved applicant will receive up to $30,000 of financial assistance.
