HOME

CHWC is proud to partner with the Unified Government's HOME program to build a limited number of homes for sale that come with up to 20% in downpayment assistance. This program is available for income qualified families interested in buying select CHWC-built homes.

Buyer will need to take CHWC’s homebuyer education class. We ask that you apply once you have received a pre-approval letter from lender and have put a contract on a house (tentative closing date).

The process takes at least 45 business days to complete, so be sure to apply as far in advance of your closing date.
