Applicants are required to complete a HUD-approved home buyer education course before applying. Locally, Horizons offers an on-line course that is HUD-approved, but applicants are able to take any course they choose. However, it must specifically state the course is offered by a "HUD-approved" counseling agency in order for it to meet the requirements of the First Time Home Buyer program.
