Targeted areas are census tracts in Washington state that meet federal guidelines as economically distressed. These economically distressed areas are given special consideration under the Mortgage Credit Certificate and other Downpayment Assistance Programs. This determines the census tract number of the property. There are many helpful resources such as the Thomas Guide with Census Tracks, the city or county planning office, and these links: http://www.ffiec.gov/geocode/ and http://factfinder.cenus.gov. You can check the maps below to determine whether the census tract falls within a target area.

Homeownership begins with a first step. You can take this first step today or whenever you're ready with our new "Education For Home Buyers" program. Don't let calendars get in the way of your journey. We offer multiple classes each month for your convenience. All of our classes fulfill the requirements of the State; after completing the homebuyer seminar you will receive a certificate that can be used (for two years) with any Washington State Housing Commission loan program that you qualify for.
