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

Topics covered include:
- Homeownership Readiness & Affordability

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 eHomeAmerica 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 Williamson. This may be accomplished either via a face-to-face or telephone appointment.
