Honoring veterans through mortgage assistance


Veteran home buyersVeterans Day is a national holiday set aside to honor all veterans, both living and dead. In keeping with the tradition of honoring those who have served our country, states nationwide have developed home-buying programs specifically designed for veterans.

This slideshow looks at the 10 states with the largest population of veterans and examines which state-specific home-buying programs are available to veterans.

While some states have home-buying programs geared specifically toward veterans, many of the statewide purchasing programs designed for first-time buyers are also made available to veterans. States have various qualification standards for their individual mortgage programs, many of which require veterans to attend homebuyer education courses.

The struggles of returning veterans are well documented, so providing affordable financing for veterans has been a top priority for all 50 states. As the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs’ website says, “As a military veteran you protected the American Dream. Now is your opportunity to live it.”
