COVID-19 Update

Due to concerns over COVID-19, the NWMT office is closed to in-person traffic at this time and all of our staff is working remotely. This is true for our partner network as well, but we will continue to offer all homebuyer services via phone and web conferencing. Please contact Kristin at (406) 604-4558 or by email [email protected], if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Online Homebuyer Education

You have two options for online homebuyer education: eHome America or Framework. While online education cannot replace the experience of an in-person class, both eHome America and Framework classes provide a comprehensive education on the homebuying journey. Another great benefit to online education is that you can truly take it at your pace because it gives your the ability to get in an out of your account at any time. There are also resources available with both courses that will benefit you once you have purchased a home.

In order to receive your homebuyer education class certificate of completion you will need to complete a one-on-one appointment with one of our HUD-certified housing counselors. This appointment can be done in person or over the phone and can generally be made to fit your schedule.

The content and topics are the same for both classes, but the delivery styles differ slightly. Feel free to choose the class that suits your learning style best. Both classes are HUD- certified, and both have adopted NeighborWorks America’s National Industry Standards. If you are in need of a scholarship, please contact the counselor in your area.
