Frameworks CDC’s Notice About COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

In consideration of COVID-19 and because we care about the health and safety of our clients, Frameworks CDC is temporarily discontinuing all on-site Homebuyer Education classes and in-person Housing Counseling appointments.

In our efforts to mitigate the spread of the disease and to keep our housing counseling and homebuyer education class clients safe, we are making the following changes to continue to provide excellent services to our clients:

Frameworks CDC has always offered online Homebuyer Education Classes. All participants are welcomed to register for the online Homebuyer Education class via the link below.

Frameworks CDC will conduct all one-on-one telephone Housing Counseling appointments instead of face-to-face Housing Counseling appointments.

All participants residing in Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson are required to complete both the education portion AND complete a one-on-one, telephone Housing Counseling session in order to receive the certificate of completion.

Classes are open to the public and registration is required. Online registration is noted below.

LENDERS:  Please read “IMPORTANT NOTE” below!


The online class gives a participant the opportunity to take the class portion on his/her own time. Offered in both English and Spanish, the class is powered by eHome America and consists of 6 modules.   The cost is $99.00.

One-on-one counseling is required to receive the certificate of completion, if you reside in one of the following counties:  Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and WilliamsonPer the above notice, all Housing Counseling appointments will be conducted via telephone.
