Application Process

STEP 1: Attend an information session

At this session, you will hear a presentation about our homebuying program and you will have an opportunity to have a 1-on-1 meeting to ask questions and determine whether our homebuying program is a good fit for your household. You will complete an Interest Form and leave the session with a list of documents that are required to be submitted with an application.

After attending an Information Session, a staff member will contact you. If you are ready to submit an application, the staff member will schedule you to the next application workshop.
 

STEP 3: Complete an Application

Gather the required documents on the list provided to you at the Information Session. At your scheduled appointment, you will complete an application and, if you have a $15 money order, your tri-merge credit report will be pulled. Your application, credit report, and personal documents will be reviewed to determine if you may qualify.  If the documents you bring are not complete, you may not be able to proceed to the next step.
