North Dakota Housing Finance Agency (NDHFA) is offering Participating Lender training in Bismarck and Fargo this May.
“Training is geared to helping our participating lenders who are new to our programs understand the options available through NDHFA that can help make the dream of homeownership a reality for many North Dakotans,” said Brandon Dettlaff, homeownership division director.
Low-cost financing along with down payment and closing cost assistance is offered through the FirstHomeTM program. The HomeAccess program offers similar assistance to single parents with at least one dependent child residing in the home 50 percent of the time, households with elderly or permanently disabled family members, as well as honorably discharged veterans.
While FirstHome and HomeAccess both have income and purchase price limits, the agency’s North Dakota Roots program can be used to finance mortgage loans for higher-income households or to refinance residential real estate loans.
Training will be held May 4 at Dakota Medical Foundation, 4141 28th Ave S, Fargo, ND. An additional session will be held May 16 at the North Dakota Heritage Center, 612 E Boulevard Ave, Bismarck, ND. Session times are 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.
While there is no cost to attend, pre-registration is required, and class size is limited to 30 people. More information is available on the Resources for Lenders page on NDHFA’s website, www.ndhfa.org.
Lender questions regarding NDHFA’s homeownership programs or training can be directed to the acquisition staff at (800) 292-8621 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Lenders who are unable to attend the live training are encouraged to check out the on-demand training the agency offers through EdApp.
