What topics are covered in this class?
CHFA’s three-hour homebuyer education class covers the
technical, financial and practical aspects involved in
buying and maintaining a home. The curriculum reviews the sometimes complex trail of
documentation that accompanies a home purchase from the
offer to the closing. For first-time homebuyers unfamiliar
with the ongoing requirements of homeownership,
this class assists them in protecting their investment,
including planning a budget and a home
maintenance schedule as well as foreclosure prevention.
Who is allowed to participate?
The three-hour homebuyer education class is required for
all CHFA loan applicants of the
Downpayment Assistance Program, the
HFA Preferred Loan Program, the
Homeownership Program and the
Home of Your Own Mortgage Program.
Applicants under these programs will be given a loan
reservation number from their CHFA-approved
Participating Lender which will enable them to register
with one of the CHFA/HUD approved counseling agencies that
conduct the homebuyer education program.

homebuyer education classes on
behalf of CHFA. These non-profit agencies are staffed by
professionals who are trained in CHFA loan programs.
