Texas Veterans Loan Program

Texas, veterans, loans, military, benefites

As we recently celebrated Independence Day and honored those who have served our country, I was reminded of the wonderful program designed to help our service men and women attain their dream of homeownership!

The Texas Veterans Loan Programs was originally formed by Sam Houston and the Texas Republic to reward veterans land in return for their military service. Although Texas no longer gives land away to veterans, there are many housing opportunities including low interest loans for everything from land purchase to home improvements.
