Framework Partnership

Framework is an intuitive, interactive, and mobile-friendly online homebuyer education course developed jointly by HPN and the Minnesota Homeownership Center. The course is the most comprehensive online course available and guides learners through the home buying process with the highest quality curriculum that exceeds the National Industry Standards for Homebuyer Education and Counseling.

Buying a House is a big deal. Do it right.
Framework is built on the belief that there is a better way to buy a home and that our communities will be strengthened when homebuyer education is as natural to the home buying process as finding a Realtor.

Educated Homebuyers are Successful Homeowners.
One of Framework's goals is to create a pipeline of mortgage-ready borrowers and financially stable homeowners through a continuum of services that starts with homebuyer education and stewards the homeowners over their lifetime as a homeowner.

Education for Every Homebuyer
Framework was designed to meet the growing demand for online homebuyer education services through a diverse partner network and directly to consumers. For counseling organizations, the course complements existing business models and can even help education staff spend more time on intensive, one-on-one counseling.. For lenders, the certificate that borrowers receive after completing the course and exam provides assurance that they understand the home buying process. For homebuyers themselves, completion of the course puts them on the path to sustainable homeownership.

In 2014, we launched a Spanish language version of the course, and completed technology enhancements to enable mobile accessibility. To access the Framework course, click here.
