(BLOOMINGTON) - The City of Bloomington's Department of Housing and Neighborhood Development (HAND) will host the Home Buyers Club in April.

The workshop offers participants a chance to learn how to become successful homeowners.

The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 18th and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 25th in Bloomington City Hall, 401 N. Morton St. Attendance to both sessions is required to complete the class.

The Home Buyers Club program helps first-time home buyers understand and overcome the obstacles involved in realizing the American dream of homeownership. Presenters will include HAND's HUD-certified housing counselors, and local real estate industry professionals.
