California Housing Finance Agency

For more than 35 years, CalHFA has supported the needs of renters and first-time homebuyers by creating and financing progressive housing solutions so more Californians have a place to call home. First-time homeownership is a great opportunity; it is also a big responsibility. Statistics prove that homebuyer education contributes to successful homeownership. CalHFA wants you to be successful! That is why we require homebuyer education for every first-time homebuyer using a CalHFA mortgage program. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to print out your Homebuyer Education Certificate. Working with your CalHFA-approved lender, we will ensure that the required paperwork is exchanged, and you will be on your way to successful first-time homeownership!

Reminder: this registration page is for you to enroll in the online version of the Homebuyer Education course. If you would prefer to meet with a counselor face-to-face for your Homebuyer Education course, you can do so through CalHFA's approved provider, NeighborWorks. For more information contact a NeighborWorks location near you.
