Unlock the door to your new home! Prospective homebuyers whose lender or mortgage assistance program requires them to attend a HUD approved homebuyer education class no longer need to travel outside Waldo County to fulfill course requirements. First Time Homebuyer classes are now available right in Belfast through Waldo Community Action Partners (WCAP), a local 501(c)(3) non-profit.


WCAP's Homebuyer education classes follow the State of Maine "HoMEworks" curricula. These classes allow students to gain the knowledge necessary to take charge of the project of home buying, such as:


- Understanding the steps in the homebuying process

- Learn about all the costs involved

- Set goals and prepare for homeownership

- Avoid being scammed or taken advantage of

- Protect and grow your investment


These classes are currently recommended by most lenders as part of the lending process and also open the door to financial assistance on certain mortgage products, like qualifying for up to $3,500 toward a down payment on MaineHousing loans. These classes are recommended as a starting point for anyone planning to buy a home.


Live classes are 10 hours in length, divided into two weekend day sessions. Classes allow students to earn a certificate to present to a bank or other lender that can help qualify for certain first-time homebuyer rates and programs. All courses are designed to help students get all the questions answered without feeling obligated to buy a home or work with a particular professional.
