Diversified Housing Development

We are a HUD approved housing agency. First time homebuyers are mandated to attend a (HUD approved) first time buyer workshop, in order to receive federal, state and/or Baltimore County funds. Our Homebuyers Workshops are FREE. You must register in advance by contacting our office. A homebuyer must also have a one-on-one counseling session, to receive a certificate. Both the workshop and one on one are required for any designated funding for first time homebuyers. There are NO exceptions. In our first time homebuyers (pre-purchase) workshops, a potential homebuyer will learn about the down payment and closing cost assistance programs. The homebuyer will also learn the process of purchasing a home, as well as budgeting, savings and credit. Typically, our homebuyers’ workshops are held at the local libraries in the NW area of Baltimore County. They are held during the week night from 6pm-9pm. Our one-on-one counseling sessions are during the day, at our office.

If you have any questions, please email us or contact us via phone.
