Many affordable purchase programs and/or down payment assistance programs require a U.S. Housing & Urban Development (HUD) certified homebuyer education certificate. The Bay Area Affordable Homeownership Alliance currently partners with a HUD certificate provider for its Antioch and San Leandro homebuyer assistance programs. Certificates for all other geographic areas must be attained from one of the HUD providers listed below. Note: An education seminar is different from BAAHA's workshops. No certificates are provided for specialized workshops  that BAAHA offers, such as specialized Homebuyer Assistance or BMR Program focused  workshop.

If BAAHA has no available HUD certified homebuyer education seminars scheduled, a certificate may be attained through a multitude of other U.S. Housing & Urban Development (HUD) certified agencies. The list below was compiled by BAAHA from the HUD webiste and, accordingly,  may contain inaccuracies. All links below will redirect you to a new browser window.
