Paid 8-Hour Homebuyer Education Online

For those who can’t attend NKCDC’s free homebuyer workshops—or who need more class hours to qualify for downpayment assistance programs—two companies provide eight-hour homebuyer education classes online. Both are accessible by phone, tablet and computer. Both are HUD-approved and are accepted by most local and national mortgage products.

In order to qualify for homebuyer assistance programs, homebuyers who take these courses are required to schedule at least one individual appointment with an NKCDC housing advisor and complete the necessary compliance/disclosure forms. You are also encouraged to take advantage of other housing services NKCDC offers.
