The (HAP) which is known as the Houston Assistance Program was developed to provide assistance to low to average income home buyers. Bill Edge, who is a Texas Affordable Housing Specialist, has worked in conjunction with the city of Houston to ensure this program is made available to families in the incorporated part of Houston.
There have been some key changes for HAP in 2010. The $45,000 in Hurricane Ike assistance has ceased. The city of Houston has had differences in staff and in the paperwork needed by the city/. The difference of the maximum grant which is now $19,500 is one of the major changes. Time Homes must be occupied by homeowners as the principal residence has changed to 10 years instead of the previous 5 years. There has been increasing from a maximum of $135,000 to $200,160 in the sales price of the home.
The Houston Assistance Programs have provided us with approval to work with them, and our changes are the up-to-date so as to ensure the most appropriate results.
