September 8, 2014

Back to Community Lender Resource Center

Owning a home is a dream most Americans strive for. A home of our own gives us security, stability, and a strong sense of community. But before your customers can start down the path to sustainable homeownership, they'll need to get financially ready.

Our CreditSmart® program can help.

More than 3.5 million consumers across the country have taken advantage of CreditSmart to help them make smarter financial decisions. This free, multilingual curriculum shows potential borrowers how to repair credit, create a budget, and helps them decide if owning a home is right for them.

CreditSmart is available as a self-paced Web version or as a training class led by a HUD-approved counselor. Visit HUD's website for a list of organizations that offer homebuyer education.

Home Possible® Mortgages

First-time homebuyers who qualify for our Home Possible Mortgages can take our CreditSmart® Steps to Homeownership Tutorial to satisfy their homeownership education requirement.
