What to expect

Check out our 8-step overview of the application process or an Applicant Step-by-Step Example.

Are you ready?

Buyers must provide a Homebuyer Education Certificate as part of the full application process, after the lottery. Buyers may take courses from any County-approved agency or any HUD-certified agency not currently on the County’s list. Buyers must also participate in a mandatory AC Boost workshop if invited to submit a full application after the lottery. Check out the list of County-approved homebuyer education programs to find one that works for you. Please note: Your Homebuyer Education Certificate must be no more than 1 year old at the time of submission.

Have questions on qualifying for a first mortgage?

We encourage you to begin working with an experienced homebuyer counseling agency to learn about mortgage readiness. In addition to a homebuyer education course, you may qualify for one-on-one counseling. Check out the list of County-approved homebuyer education programs to find one that works for you (please note that not all agencies listed provide one-on-one counseling).
