CHAC is currently not offering site based but online homebuyer education is available. See the Homebuyer Education and Counseling dropdown  These courses provide an overview of the home buying and mortgage process. Once the online portion is complete you will need to sign up for the 1/2 hour phone session.  See times, dates, and information under Homebuyer Education – Phone Session Registration.

CHAC also provides Downpayment Assistance loans.  Your lender must submit an application to CHAC to determine if you qualify,  The above detailed Home Buyer Education on-line class is required. Once your application is reviewed and the loan approved, an additional class “Borrowers class session” will be required. You will receive information about your loan and documents to sign along with instructions for taking that phone class. You will not be able to close on your loan until the “Borrowers Class session” is completed. 

We provide counseling for clients looking to buy, as well as those experiencing problems with their mortgage or thinking about a refinance, home equity loan or other housing issues.
