Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association Approves Renewal Application
RCAP Solutions is pleased to announce that the Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA) has renewed the organization’s application for the Massachusetts Homeownership Collaborative Seal of Approval, effective through June 30, 2021.
The application, which was reviewed by CHAPA’s Collaborative’s Selection Committee, confirms that RCAP Solutions meets the criteria that has been established by the Massachusetts Homeownership Collaborative for the provision of pre-purchase homebuyer education and counseling services to low and moderate income households. The Homeownership Collaborative, which was formed in 1996, is an initiative managed by CHAPA that supports and promotes homebuyer education.
As an agency that has received a Seal of Approval from the Homeownership Collaborative, RCAP Solutions must adhere to their Code of Ethics, listed here. In addition, when providing homebuyer education classes targeted to those with low and moderate income, RCAP Solutions must cover the required information about the homebuying process; information which is determined by the Collaborative.
The purpose of administering these programs “is to educate and counsel prospective homebuyers to make informed, voluntary decisions regarding the homebuying process.” RCAP Solutions also has agreed with the Collaborative to provide transparency in regards to where our funding sources for these classes come from. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact our Housing and Consumer Education Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RCAP Solutions holds First Time Homebuyer Classes at the Worcester office almost every month. To view and register for an upcoming class, please visit our HCEC Events Calendar. To view the full letter from CHAPA and to read the full Seal of Approval, click here.
