Do you need a Massachusetts Homebuyer Education Certificate to qualify for a loan program or an affordable housing opportunity? Are you looking to buy a home, but not sure you can afford one? We offer the approved homebuyer education workshop that is required for Mass Housing, Mass Housing Partnership 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 below.

If you have any questions about the program or to receive the information sheet and the registration form, please send an email to EOLeary@CoastalHB.org.
