HOMEBUYER EDUCATION & HOMEOWNERSHIP
There are multiple options for people who are further along on their pathway out of poverty and seek long-term financial empowerment. Homebuyer education teaches low-to-moderate-income families more than how to purchase and maintain a house; it teaches them how to live their dream of having a home to finally call their own.
Free Homebuyer Education Classes
Primavera’s Homeownership program will help you find lenders, secure safe loans, and avoid predatory lending. Some first-time homebuyers may qualify for down payment assistance. Down payment assistance depends on the availability of funds and your income level. Consult with one of our housing counselors to find out if you may qualify.
To get started, you must first attend an orientation session by calling (520) 882-5383 x136 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Orientations are offered on Mondays in English or Wednesdays in Spanish. Both orientations and classes are held at our Administrative Offices located at the Jim & Vicki Click Training Center in Tucson, Arizona: 151 W. 40th St.
AT YOUR ORIENTATION SESSION:
You will be asked to provide the following documentation:
- photo ID
- Social Security card
- one-month proof of income (pay stubs, SSI, SSD or pension award letters, etc.)
- one-month bank statement (checking, savings accounts, etc.)
- $24.55 for a complete, individual credit report (or $49.10 per couple). You do not have to pay this fee if you bring a copy of a credit report that has been completed in the past three months.

Meet Ms. Duron
A dream come true!
She holds the keys to her new Primavera home made possible by a grant from Project Reinvest: Neighborhoods and homeownership’s extra efforts to find additional combined resources of over $47,000.
This will keep her mortgage payment affordable both now and when she retires soon.
The grant supports the creation of four new, single-family homes for first-time homebuyers on formerly distressed lots.
