Why Homeownership Matters

The benefits of homeownership are indisputable – Healthier families. Better educational outcomes. More secure communities. Generational wealth created. Since it first launched in Cleveland, this program has provided the opportunity for more than 1,300 low-income rental families to purchase their own homes. And, with the tools and training the program provides, more than 99% of them have stayed in their home for at least 5 years.

Tools for Success

Our Single Family Lease Purchase Program as an anti-poverty and economic security strategy 

  • Home Ownership Preparation
  • • Families work with housing counselors and take home-ownership classes to ensure they are prepared and mortgage-ready to become homeowners.
  • Equivalency Principle
  • • The “equivalency-principle” maintains a family will succeed as a homeowner as long as the cost of homeownership (including insurance and taxes) does not exceed what they had previously paid in rent.
  • Program Qualifications 
  • • On-time rental payments
  • • Cash Savings
  • • Homebuyer Educational Courses
  • • 40% Debt-to-Income Ratio
