Affordable Housing Assistance Program

affordable housing in san angelo

This is a program in partnership with the City of San Angelo to provide affordable housing in revitalization neighborhoods. We are building in 6 neighborhoods within the community. This is helping residents afford housing and put down roots.

Affordable Housing Assistance Program

Program Details:  Newly constructed homes built in the six (Blackshear, Belaire, Lakeview, Reagan, Rio Vista and Fort Concho) low-income target neighborhoods. Homes are 3 bedroom, 2 bath with 1 car garage and a wood fence. Homes have brick and hardiboard exterior with energy efficient design. Most homes are between 1200 and 1300 sq. ft. heated space.

Homes sell for around $100,000. Qualified buyers get a buy-down from the City of San Angelo half-cent sales tax fund to bring their mortgage loan to around $60,000. Home Buyer must have acceptable credit and available income to be approved for at least $60,000 loan from a participating lender.

Eligible Household Beneficiaries: Persons at or below 80% Area Median Family Income (AMFI) with enough income to afford an estimated $525/month mortgage payment. (Typically, this is earning over $22,000/year.)

Eligible Activities: Newly constructed homes in target neighborhoods.

  • Home Buyer selects from available tax foreclosure lots and Galilee CDC owned properties and floorplans.

  • The buy-down is a deferred, forgivable second lien on the home.

  • Project construction financing may include HOME funds which require a corresponding fifteen year affordability agreement.

  • Home Buyer must complete Home Buyer Education.
