While most homebuyers want to get the most house they can afford, it is crucial to also be able to afford the home they buy.

Neighborhood Housing Services, a local HUD-certified housing counseling agency, teaches a homebuyer education class each month that meets the education requirement for MSHDA down payment assistance.

The class is six hours long, split over two evenings. Next month, the class dates are Feb. 8 and 22, from 5-8 p.m.
