Having graduated from college a few years ago, I didn't think it was possible to buy a home with my outstanding student loans. Virginia Housing made it possible with a grant. I couldn't believe these were available to first-time homebuyers without repayment.”

I remember when I was a loan officer, there were times I didn't have any loan options for families who needed special financing. Virginia Housing has been a wonderful resource in helping to provide options to make the dream of homeownership a reality for so many Virginians.”

I’m passionate about providing more affordable housing in Virginia, and I also believe our children need better access to STEM programs. Buckroe Pointe townhome community in Hampton offers both – residents have a safe, affordable place to call home and children can take advantage of STEM programs offered on-site in the community learning center.’’

What I liked the most was that they were taking an existing building and renovating it so that it could serve a new purpose. I absolutely love that idea... We've got to do more of that.”
