Veteran and child outside homeFinding employment and a place to call home can be a challenging task for the thousands of veterans who transition back into civilian life each year.

That's why the City of Arlington is pleased to be included once again in Veterans United Home Loan's Top 10 "Best Cities for Veteran Homebuyers" list.

Veterans United Home Loans said it created a list of veteran-friendly cities to help these individuals narrow down their house-hunting search. Top factors include veteran unemployment rate, veteran population, cost of living, job growth, education and percentage of monthly income spent on mortgage and rent payments.

Arlington is ranked No. 3 on this year's list, scoring well in categories such as rate of growth of VA loans (FY 18-19) and overall housing affordability. 

The City of Arlington has helped make housing more affordable for hundreds of families through the use of federal grants funding, including Community Development Block Grants and HOME Investment Partnerships.
