On September 30th, The Goodnow Fund awarded a $10,000 grant to HDF.

The grant will support HDF’s first time home buyer education and counseling program through 2017. HDF’s first time homebuyer counseling services are provided completely free of charge to income-eligible prospective homebuyers.

The program has been extremely successful in preparing regular people for the challenges of homeownership because it combines proven financial counseling materials and technical expertise with the human touch of five well qualified and certified counselors.

The Goodnow Fund is a longtime supporter of HDF. HDF’s President and CEO, Joan Carty, adds, “We are so pleased to be included in the Goodnow Fund grantee roster. They are so thorough and thoughtful in their grant making that funding from them feels very special.”
