The City of Antioch has partnered with Homeownership Alliance to launch the Antioch Home Ownership Program (AHOP). The mission of the program is to improve housing security by increasing housing affordability and providing education and counselling for new and future homeowners.
AHOP helps people who want to buy a home by providing interest free down payment, closing cost assistance, and other loan programs for eligible applicants. AHOP also provides educational resources and counseling to make informed homebuying decisions. Prior to applying for financial assistance, the applicant needs to participate and complete a 6 hour HUD homebuyer education course. These workshops are offered periodically by BAAHA.
