The Community Action Partnership of Northwest Montana (CAPNM) is once again presenting HUD-approved in-person classes for homebuyers at its Kalispell location on Main Street. The first class is scheduled for Saturday, October 8, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The cost is $75 per household; however, scholarships are available by contacting Sara Briggs. All registration materials with payment must be received no later than September 28 at 5 p.m.
Registration packages are available by contacting [email protected], or by visiting the website at www.capnm.net and clicking on “Workshops” then “Homebuyer Education”. Click on the button to access the admission file.
All admissions packages must be completed and returned no later than 5 p.m. September 28 to CAPNM at 214 Main St. in Kalispell, by email to [email protected] (use PDF attachments) or by fax to 406 -565-4834, or by mail to Sara Briggs, CAPNM, PO Box 88, Kalispell, MT 59903. A check or cash must also be received by 5 p.m. to complete registration.
Once the admission package is received, an individual counseling session required by HUD must be scheduled. Normally, this session takes place before the course is held. The schedule for consultation sessions is flexible. Registrants can choose to have it over the phone or in person; it takes about an hour.
During the course, enrollees will meet and be able to interact with several area lenders and other professionals such as real estate agents, insurance agents, building inspectors, etc. Completion of this course and individual counseling session is one of the key elements to qualifying for various loan products and down payment assistance programs.
