Homebuyer Education Providers


To be eligible for the Dallas Homebuyer Assistance Program (DHAP), the borrower and/or co-borrower must complete a group or face-to-face homebuyer education course from a Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-approved housing counseling agency prior to closing, and must forward a certificate of completion to the DHAP lender.  The certificate MUST NOT be older than 1 year from the date of issue. Due to the City of Dallas emergency declaration of the Covid-19 virus, online homebuyer education courses taken from March 14, 2020 through September 30, 2020 will be accepted.  This may be extended after further evaluation of the emergency declaration.  The online provider must be HUD approved. 

Housing counseling agencies are permitted by HUD to charge reasonable and customary fees for housing counseling and education services, including pre-purchase, reverse mortgage, rental, and non-delinquency post-purchase counseling services, provided certain conditions are met:

  • Agencies must provide counseling without charge to persons who demonstrate they cannot afford the fees;
  • Agencies must inform clients of the fee structure in advance of providing services; and
  • Fees must be commensurate with the level of services provided.
