Homeownership Education and Counseling provides potential buyers with tools and information to help them make housing choices that are affordable and sustainable.

MHDC has partnered with Mortgage Assistance Counseling (MAC) Agencies like NECAC to help you with services you may need to avoid foreclosure.

Several programs and loans require that a buyer earn a “Home Buyer Education Certificate” which prepares the potential buyer for the decision to buy, the purchase process and the responsibility of home ownership. We offer both Home Ownership Classroom Training and Home Ownership Online Training.

If you are looking at purchasing in a rural area, we package USDA 502 Loans which does not require a down payment. If you currently receive a housing voucher, you may be able to use that towards a house payment as well.

MHDC has partnered with Housing Stability and Eviction Diversion (HSED) Agencies like NECAC to assist you with services you may need to achieve housing stability.
