Homebuyer Education

Blackfeet Housing’s Homebuyer Education class is typically held every other month at the Blackfeet Housing offices. The class covers:

  • The history of homeownership
  • How homeownership works on Tribal trust land
  • The loan process
  • Knowledge about credit and how it is used
  • Working with tribal trust land
  • The ins and outs of buying a home verses building a home

The class has a particular focus on Tribal Lands and how tribal members can be better with their finances in general to attain homeownership. Classes are typically held in the middle of the month, usually on a Wednesday or a Thursday. The normal hours are usually 8am-5pm with breakfast and snacks provided. Lunch is on your own.

This is usually the first step of the Blackfeet Housings Affordable Homeownership Program. In order to be a part of a class an individual will need to go through the program even if it’s just for the Homebuyers Education Class.
