VHDA provides mortgages for first-time homebuyers, as well as financing for apartment communities and neighborhood revitalization efforts. They offer free homebuyer classes, support housing counseling, and help people with disabilities and the elderly make their homes more livable. They also administer the federal Housing Choice Voucher and Housing Credit programs in Virginia. VHDA is self-supporting and receives no state taxpayer dollars to fund its programs.
