CHFA believes a well-informed homebuyer becomes a successful homeowner.

We sponsor free, in-person Homebuyer Education classes across the state through a network of CHFA-approved education providers.

Several providers also offer online classes in English and Spanish. The borrower will pay a $50.00 fee for this class and any co-borrower will pay $15.00, if completed with the same provider. The borrower must complete the education and contact the provider to request a discount code for any co-borrower(s). These fees count toward the $1,000 minimum borrower contribution that CHFA requires.

The online class requires a follow-up one-on-one counseling session with a provider (counseling session can be via phone or in person). Borrower and co-borrower must contact the agency to coordinate the follow-up counseling.

Upon completion of the in-person or online course and counseling session, the borrower(s) will receive a certificate of completion from the counseling agency.

CHFA does not accept homebuyer education certificates issued by a non–CHFA-approved homebuyer education provider.

Please note:

As of September 4, 2012, CHFA will no longer offer the online First Time Homebuyer and Money Management classes through CHFA U. See above for the new online option. However, CHFA U certificates will remain valid if the homebuyer goes under contract within nine months of the date on the certificate.
