Homebuyer Education

Successful homeownership is at the heart of thriving, vibrant communities. Families rely on long‐term homeownership as a key asset for building wealth, and communities of successful homeowners are safer, healthier and more civically engaged than majority‐renter communities. That’s why CAPLP has partnered with the Minnesota Homeownership Center to provide Homebuyer Education classes to make successful home ownership possible for low- and moderate‐income households in our community. Training is unbiased and provided by certified staff. $25 registration fee includes a personal copy of the Home Stretch Workshop Manual.
