The City of Dallas Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization Department offers a variety of programs to assist Dallas residents and strengthen communities.  The Department's goals are to increase home ownership opportunities, especially for low-income families; preserve existing owner-occupied and rental housing stock; increase availability of affordable housing opportunities; and support neighborhood and community-based preservation and revitalization efforts.

Since 1991, the City of Dallas Homebuyer Assistance Program has provided a program for families purchasing homes within the city limits of Dallas with funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) using HOME Investment Partnership Funds and Community Development Block Grant Funds (CDBG).  To date, the City of Dallas has provided homebuyer assistance to over 7,900 families.

Dallas Homebuyer Assistance Program assists homebuyers with a total household income of no less than 60 percent and up to 80 percent of the Dallas Area Median Family Income to purchase a home within the city limits of Dallas.   All applicants and household members must be a U. S. Citizen or a Permanent Resident with a valid residency card.  The amount of assistance will be based on need.  The HOME maximum property values may not exceed $228,000 for existing properties and $246,000 for new construction.  The home must pass a review to ensure it meets Minimum Housing Standards (MHS).
