Effective March 16, 2020, all face to face MPDU training classes for the First Time Home Buyer, MPDU Orientation seminars and Application sessions are cancelled. The First Time Home Buyer and MPDU seminars are being conducted electronically via zoom. Please review the schedule for class dates. 

Class Schedule

Printable Version: Class Schedule 20XX

This schedule shows the schedule for first-time home-buyer (FTHB) seminars and MPDU orientation sessions for the moderately-priced dwelling unit program for new buyers. These are different classes. They are both free. HCI recommends first time buyers take the FTHB class first, and then the MPDU orientation, if the home buyer intends to apply for the MPDU program.

Important: Home buyers who want to participate in the MPDU program must take both the first-time home-buyer (FTHB) class and MPDU orientation class. Home buyers who do not plan to participate in the MPDU program only need to take the first-time home-buyer (FTHB) class.

Registration for the FTHB class closes
When the number of registrants reaches the zoom limit. People who are not registered will not be allowed to attend.

Only one member of the household needs to take the FTHB class, but HCI encourages as many members of the household to attend as possible.

All classes are held electronically via zoom.
