Through a HUD grant, Morris Brown College has teamed up with Athens Land Trust, a HUD Certified Housing Counseling agency to offer financial literacy to the entire MBC family, and the greater community.
Our 8-hour, HUD-certified Homebuyer Education Course has been moved online. This all-encompassing course is designed to teach first-time homebuyers all the steps to homeownership. Classes are typically held on Saturdays, with occasional exceptions.
Affordable Housing Information Sessions provide an overview of ALT’s Community Land Trust model of homeownership. Attendees will get an overview of ALT’s homeownership program and have the opportunity to ask questions. We host one session per month via Zoom, and another is held in-person at our office at 685 N. Pope Street. There is no charge to attend an info session.
Athens Land Trusts Housing Counseling team is offering a series of free Financial Management Workshops. Workshops will be held online via Zoom on Wednesdays from 5:00 to 6:30 PM unless otherwise indicated. Advanced registration is required. Registration for workshops closes at 5:00 PM the day prior to the session. A zoom link to the meeting will be sent to you the day before the workshop.
Twice a year, we offer our Grow Your Business Course, a series of workshops designed to help budding entrepreneurs develop their business and for existing business owners to grow their business. Our goal is to have registrants attend every workshop to take full advantage of this amazing FREE offering, as well as to develop a written business plan for their business. Workshops will be part-lecture and part in-class work to give attendees time to develop strong business plans and strategies.
