Program Process

  1. Submit an application. It typically takes 2-4 business days for your application to be processed. 
  2. Eligible applicants will be invited to a Homebuyer Education course. 
  3. Complete all education sessions to be eligible for down payment assistance. 
  4. Complete a counseling session with one of our HUD-Certified Housing Counselors. During your one-on-one appointment, we will review your budget, credit, and loan eligibility. 
  5. Receive pre-approval for a first mortgage from one of our participating lenders. 
  6. Find your home! Your realtor should meet with a member of our team if they have not worked with our program before. 
  7. Once you find your home, NWL construction staff will inspect it to make sure that the potential rehab scope fits within the available funding. (It is possible that your home would be disallowed from the program based on rehabilitation needs; most homes require some rehabilitation, but not all). 
  8. Close (complete the purchase) on your home! 
  9. Begin any necessary repairs or rehabilitation.
