The Homeownership Program is offered to eligible Bremerton Housing Authority (BHA) voucher holders. The program allows participants to have their housing subsidy applied towards a monthly mortgage payment, after a home is purchased. Residents who wish to join the program must meet certain eligibility requirements and when deemed eligible they are required to attend a homeownership orientation and education course in order to prepare for homeownership. Participants select homes for purchase and secure their own mortgage financing through a lender.
