Fair Housing Champions: the Alabama Housing Finance Authority

Meet Alana Beaugez from the Alabama Housing Finance Authority! ✨🏡
As we celebrate Fair Housing Month this April, HAAR is thrilled to spotlight organizations across the state that are champions for Fair Housing.  
AHFA is dedicated to making homeownership a reality for ALL Alabama residents. This April, they are reintroducing a powerful tool for REALTORS®: the First Step Mortgage Revenue Bond program!
What’s in the Toolbox?
  • Down payment assistance
  • Grants toward closing costs
  • Mortgage Credit Certificates for incredible tax savings
  • Below-market interest rates through the First Step program
Mark your calendars! The First Step program is set to launch this April, bringing back opportunities for homeownership that have helped 50,000 Alabama families before. Keep an eye on your inbox and our social media for updates or visit AHFA.com for more info.

Homeownership Knows No Boundaries
Regardless of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin, homeownership brings stability to communities. “It’s a commitment to stay, work, pay taxes, and contribute to the greater good, said Beaugez. “Plus, it’s an economic equalizer, leveling the playing field for generations to come.”
Color-Blind Process, Equal Opportunity
The application process is completely color-blind. Every applicant receives equal consideration based on neutral qualifications. With the support of AHFA’s REALTOR® partners and lenders, they are committed to upholding fair housing practices every step of the way.
Every Household Has a Story
Behind every application is a unique family with dreams of stability and security. Homeownership isn’t just about numbers—it’s about building wealth and economic stability for future generations.
Let’s Connect!
As Beaugez travels across our beautiful state, she is inspired by the shared dedication to these goals. You can work with her to educate potential homebuyers through CE classes, lunch and learns, or Q&A sessions tailored to your needs.
