We offer homebuyer education as a service to educate the public as well as a requirement for receiving a HAPI Grant or Silent Second Mortgage.  Aberdeen classes are held once a month, on Tuesday & Thursday evenings from 6-9 pm for a total of 6 hours.  Sisseton classes run from 10 am to 4 pm in a one-day format, once a month.   Classes are held on an as-needed basis throughout the HAPI service area, when possible.

We help you understand the different assistance programs available in this area. We strive to cover grey areas of home-buying and home-ownership as well as answer questions and allow time for group discussion.
