The HOTH program provides veterans with the opportunity to move into an Operation Homefront (OH) home and work directly with OH caseworkers and other financial counselors to learn and plan for home ownership. Veterans accepted into the HOTH program include honorably discharged or retired veterans and service members currently serving in the National Guard or Reserves. After successful completion of the program the veteran receives the deed to the home, mortgage-free.
