DETCOG Congratulates Another Home Owner

Another East Texan is one step closer to owning a home, thanks to DETCOG's Section 8 Home Ownership Program.

Typically, Section 8 clients can choose any home that's up for sale as long as it's affordable for them, but Rashaunda Session is having her house built in Lufkin.

To qualify for DETCOG's Home Ownership Program, you have to meet income guidelines and have decent credit. Clients must also be either employed, elderly or disabled.

This is a new program for DETCOG. It lets clients use government housing vouchers to buy a home instead of rent.
