THDA loan program “HOMEOWNERSHIP FOR THE BRAVE” will change its program to “HOMEOWNERSHIP FOR HEROES.” What this means is they are extending its benefits to all of those listed above. Homeownership for the Heroes is a type of Great Choice Home Loan that offers financial assistance along with these added benefits:

• Reduced interest rate by half percentage point (0.5%)
• Waive requirements to be a first-time homeowner in all areas of Tennessee for qualified military or veterans.
• Borrow up to 100% of home’s purchase price with a VA or USDA-RD loan or 96.5% with FHA loans.
• 30-Year Term – Your monthly payments are spread out across 30 years to keep them affordable.
• Fixed Interest Rate – The interest rate never changes throughout the entire life of the loan.
• Minimum Credit Score – The credit score of everyone on your loan application must be at least 640. If you do not know your credit store, your lender can check for you. If your credit score is too low, you can work with a THDA-certified counselor to improve your score.
• Household income and purchase price limits – The maximum of your total household income and the price you can pay for a home and still qualify for the Great Choice Home Loan program varies by county. See the full chart of income and purchase price limits.
• Down Payment Assistance – Homeownership for the Heroes includes the option for our Great Choice Plus financial assistance with your loan-related expenses, including down payment (if borrowing less than 100%) and/or closing costs.
