The application process includes a written application and supporting documents (like tax returns, verifications of income, creditworthiness, employment, rent, etc.), a meeting with the Programs Manager, underwriting (or the process used to determine if the buyer can afford a Habitat home and qualify for a mortgage) and a home visit with the Homeowner Selection Committee to determine the need for housing. Applicants that qualify for the Preparatory or Homeownership Programs must be approved by the Board of Directors in order to be accepted into either of the Programs.
All buyers are referred to as Partners on purpose. We must work together in partnership to realize Habitat’s mission of decent housing for all. This partnership begins at the time of application.
