The Greater Washington Urban League’s Home Buyers Club is an 18-month program designed to assist first time home buyers through the home buying process. The club provides individuals with education through monthly seminars that are held one Saturday a month from 10 am to 12 pm. The Home Buyers Club will provide individuals with clear and consistent information along with trusted guidance from Certified Housing Counselors. The club will include a group of dedicated individuals whose primary goal is to purchase a home at the completion of this 18-month program.



If you are interested in being a part of the Home Buyers Club; the qualifications are: 


  1. All participants must be 18 years or older to participate and have adequate income to afford a mortgage payment. 

  2. You must participate in the Home Buyers Club for a minimum of 6 months.

  3. You must contribute $50 a month to a Capital One Savings account that you will open at the 1st session.


If you meet and agree to the above qualifications; you should complete the Home Buyers Club Intake Application that includes a Credit Report Authorization to be enrolled in the program and deemed eligible to participate.  The Intake application will be available on the day of the orientation. The purpose of the Credit Report Authorization is to be able to pull the credit of all participants to gauge if the participant is credit ready or close to being credit ready to purchase a home. 

Once we have received your intake form and pulled your credit report, GWUL will send you a letter confirming your participation in the Home Buyers Club. Please send your completed form to for consideration.
