___________________________________________________


Alameda County has allocated funds to help promote homeownership for households who live and/or work anywhere within Alameda County. Only one person in a household is required to live or work in the County limits. The funding is made to be available to two homebuyer categories. Households who have combined incomes that are equal to or less than 100% of the County’s Area Median Income (AMI) will be eligible for up to a $150,000 subsidy. Households between 100% and 120% of the County’s AMI will be eligible for up to a $100,000 subsidy. Seventy five (75) eligible households will be entered into a down payment assistance lottery.


First Time HUD-Certified Homebuyer Education - ACBHEdu191 & ACBSLEdu191

Certified homebuyer education will be required to submit a First Time Homebuyer Counseling Form and Homebuyer Education Certificate to BAAHA. A homebuyer education certificate is also a part of the eligibility requirements for Hayward and San Leandro homebuyer programs. BAAHA will be coordinating HUD-certified education events for both Hayward and San Leandro. Some details have not yet been set, but since space is limited at homebuyer education seminars, we encourage you to sign-up to be placed on our e-mail notification list. BAAHA will send you an update with event details, such as date, time, and place, as well as a reminder about the event.


Introductory Orientations - ACBWH19 & ACBWSL19

We also would like to invite all interested Hayward and San Leandro residents, employers, employees, civic-org staff, etc. to attend a 2 hour introductory orientation. BAAHA will be hosting 2 separate workshops for each city. Keep in mind that this is notthe HUD-certified first time homebuyer education seminar. At this workshop, you will have a chance to meet key program partners, administrators, and educators.


BAAHA First Time Homebuyer Counseling Form

Once you has completed their homebuyer education from a HUD-certified hombuyer education provider, you may submit a First Time Homebuyer Counseling Form with your HUD-education certificate to BAAHA. The form is not an application for a subsidy or program, but is used by BAAHA to determine a household is eligibililty to participate in a homebuyer program, and/or if a household is eligible for free homebuyer counseling offered by the respective city. BAAHA's First Time Homebuyer Counseling Form will require a valid homebuyer certificate to be attached. BAAHA will only review forms once a homebuyer education certificate has been provided. BAAHA is scheduling 4 (2 in Hayward, 2 in San Leandro) HUD-certified first time homebuyer education seminars.


Homebuyer Counseling

Not to be confused with homebuyer education, counseling is conducted by a HUD-certified agency, on a one-on-one basis. Some households may be eligible for free homebuyer counseling. Homebuyer counseling varies slightly between agencies, but may cover a variety of topics, such as credit recovery, debt management, budgeting, saving, and other topics to help you prepare for homeownership.
