The course covers such topics as selecting a mortgage, selecting a home, key documents in the home buying process, and post-purchase education.

TRI-CAP offers budget and credit counseling to the community. This service is offered free of charge to anyone requesting the service. A counselor will meet with each client on a one-on-one basis and evaluate the client’s individual situation. The counselor and client will work together to create short and long term goals to reduce the amount of debt the client has and create a plan to develop savings and assets. Upon request, the counselor can also evaluate a client’s credit history and provide suggestions to improve the credit score. Please contact your local TRI-CAP office to schedule an appointment.
