Buying a home for the first time can be overwhelming for anyone. And when you’re a service member or veteran, you also have to learn how to factor in your military housing benefits (Basic Allowance for Housing, or BAH) and apply for a VA loan. NFCC strives to make this process easier for members of the military community, taking the headache out of homebuying and setting your family up for long-term financial success.
NFCC offers confidential housing counseling to help you and your family feel more confident in your homebuying decisions. Wondering how to qualify? Curious about what programs are available? Looking for low-income assistance to apply for a home loan? Let us help you find the information you need.
