We offer the approved homebuyer education workshop that is required for Mass Housing programs, the MHP One Mortgage, or the Equity Builder programs as well as other down payment assistance or affordable housing opportunities. We do not attempt to sell you any goods or services; we do not receive any commissions. The fee is $75 per household and can be paid with the pay now button below.
