All applicants must complete a credit check form. Once a credit check is complete, applicants may be invited to complete an application. Each application must have enough income to pay for the home, utilities and maintenance. If your application and credit check meet the Ability to Pay qualifications, you will move to Step 2. If you do not qualify, we will refer you to a supporting agency to help you work toward qualification.
A team from the Habitat Selection Committee will schedule a home visit to meet you, assess your need for housing and discuss what it means to partner.
Each future homeowner must be willing to complete 300 sweat equity hours within a year and be willing to live where Habitat is building. The first 50 hours must be completed by the applicant(s), but after that point, family and friends are welcome to participate. Sweat equity includes construction, homeownership classes, community volunteering, and meeting with a Budget Partner.
