If you dream of owning your own home but don't know where to start, Community Action Partnership of Hennepin County's homeownership programs can help! We offer FREE individual appointments to help you determine readiness for homeownership or make a plan to get there.

  • Make a credit improvement plan if needed
  • Explain the mortgage process
  • Determine the amount of mortgage you may be eligible for
  • Identify mortgage loans and down payment assistance programs you may be eligible for.
