Since 2011, Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater Cleveland has partnered with eHome America, the nation’s premier online homeownership education program offering access to quality education for first-time home buyers.

eHome America allows NHS of Greater Cleveland to offer quality   homebuyer education to clients anytime, and anywhere throughout northeast Ohio. While an e-learning course cannot replace in-person Homebuyer counseling, eHome America allows our Homebuyer Education students to study at their own pace, and at a time and place convenient to them.

eHome America is an easy-to-use platform that covers the core-content areas of Homebuyer Education including budgeting, credit, savings plans and other key concepts of the purchasing process. Participants will also find user-friendly animated videos, content-related quizzes, and a printed certificate upon successful completion of the course work.

The fee for this course is $99.  For more information, or to start the online course, visit

PLEASE NOTE: Under current program guidelines, participants of eHome America are not eligible for the Cuyahoga County Down Payment Assistance Program.



With over 50 video tutorials offered in both English and Spanish, eHome America is the most comprehensive online homebuyer-training course available. This program was developed around the “Realizing the American Dream” educational text, created by Neighborworks® America. From this content, numerous educational videos were produced along with interactive forms and other downloadable materials. All items in this program are designed to enhance understanding of the homebuying process, from start to finish.
