Homebuyer Resources

Homebuyer Education Counseling

Finance New Orleans’s homeownership program, The Green Mortgages Program, requires homebuyer counseling for first-time homebuyers as it is an essential component in the process. Counseling must be completed prior to final loan approval. Finance New Orleans works with participating homebuyer education counseling organizations to offer online and in-person homebuyer education.  These organizations also offer Financial Fitness courses if you need help with understanding and managing your credit, developing a budget and learning about lending institutions.

For more detailed instructions on registering for our homebuyer course, please visit our Homebuyer Education page.
