About the Event
AAHA is hosting a four (4) day online workshop to provide an overview of PATHWAYS HOME: A NATIVE HOMEOWNERSHIP GUIDE, to bring Native communities resources needed to make homeownership a reality.
Pathways Home is a curriculum to help Tribes and TDHEs develop a comprehensive housing counseling program focusing on assisting tribal members to qualify for leasing, purchasing, and owning a home. Pathways Home is a program that can be tailored to each community’s needs.
This overview of the PATHWAYS HOME curriculum will provide participants with tools to implement a housing counseling program. Topics include, but are not limited to: Overview of Housing Counseling; Budgeting and Credit; Affordability; the Loan Process; Debt Management; Protecting Your Assets; and more. Participants will analyze scenarios requiring an assessment of a family’s financial situation and preparation of a plan designed to achieve the family’s housing goals.
