Please sign up for our newsletter to receive notification of the next open session dates.

Before you apply, you can prepare by:

  • Meeting with a housing and credit counselor.
  • Attending budgeting classes. These help applicants establish healthy money management skills and improve their monthly spending and saving habits.
  • Attending a First Time Home Buyer Class

Completed applications are reviewed by the Homeowner Selection Committee and approved by our Board of Directors. Members of both are volunteers from throughout the community and all walks of life.
