SHRA recognizes that homebuyer education is a critical component in preparing buyers for successful, responsible homeownership. Education is also important for homeownership preservation. SHRA down payment assistance programs require prospective homebuyers attend an eight hour course of homebuyer education provided by a HUD Approved Housing Counseling Agency.

SHRA currently is partnering with two local housing counseling agencies to provide the required homebuyer education for our borrowers.
