The workshop will be held at HAP’s University office, located at 394 University Ave W, 2nd floor, Saint Paul, MN 55103.

The Homestretch Workshop uses Minnesota-approved curriculum from the Minnesota Homeownership Center, which is often a requirement for most down payment assistance programs with MHFA, Twin Cities programs, County DP programs, first-time home-buyer products, and NSP-specific products. HBE is funded by HUD.

Home Stretch Workshop

At the end of the day, our participants walk away learning more than they expected. Our goal is to educate potential home buyers on the home-buying and homeownership process and be a resource in the community.

If you have a client in need of down payment assistance, the Homestretch Certificate will allow them access to roughly $20,000 in down payment assistance.
