Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA)
Since its creation in 1972 by the Virginia General Assembly, VHDA has helped Virginians attain quality, affordable housing through public-private partnerships with local governments, community service organizations, lenders, Realtors, developers and many others. 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. Instead, they raise money in the capital markets, and contribute a significant portion of their net revenues each year to help meet Virginia’s housing needs.
