HCV Homeownership Program

Introducing a new program being offered by the East Baton Rouge Parish Housing Authority called the Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program for existing Housing Choice Voucher - Section 8 voucher holders.  This program is designed to promote and support first-time homebuyers by allowing the voucher to be used for monthly homeownership expenses, rather than for monthly rental payments.  Monthly expenses include the principal and interest on a mortgage, real estate taxes, insurance, and the Housing Authority’s established allowances for utility, routine maintenance, and major repairs.

 

Note: Applications will be accepted when the waiting list reopens.
