Aurora’s Home Ownership Assistance Program (HOAP) offers a variety of housing-related counseling services as well as educational seminars and financial assistance to help qualified, first-time homebuyers. Other programs include: commercial and home rehabilitation, emergency repair, handicap accessibility, and various public facilities projects.

Since 1985, HOAP has been dedicated to making home ownership a reality for Aurora’s low and moderate-income families. As a HUD-approved counseling agency, the HOAP program offers free pre-purchase, foreclosure, pre-foreclosure sale, and reverse equity mortgage counseling, as well as financial assistance to homebuyers. The HOAP staff conducts educational seminars to first-time homebuyers (in English and Spanish), which covers the process of buying and owning a home. It is mandatory to attend a HUD-approved homebuyer seminar prior to applying for finanancial downpayment assistance. HOAP staff also acts as a referral service for residents to other service providers within the community.
