Sacramento Housing Redevelopment Authority


Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA)- SHRA has affordable homeownership and lending programs that require attendance at an in person, HUD approved Homebuyer Education workshop. SHRA currently accepts NeighborWorks Sacramento’s Preparing for HomeOwnership certificate to satisfy this requirement (note: always check with your lender to make sure you are attending the correct class, since requirements can change). 

SHRA administers Sacramento’s Inclusionary Housing Program.  This program requires an 8 hour homebuyer education class and an additional workshop focusing on Inclusionary Housing. We provide the Inclusionary Housing workshop as a component to our Preparing for HomeOwnership Workshop.  Prospective homebuyers who attend our 8 hour homebuyer workshop, will receive both the Preparing for HomeOwnership Workshop certificate and an Inclusionary Housing Certificate.  The information provided in the inclusionary portion of the workshop is valuable, as we fully explain what a deed restriction is and how it differs from affordable/first time homebuyer loans.
