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.
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.
Applications are only available when space is available in the program. Habitat will inform the community of available applications through submissions to the local newspaper, community organization partners, information posting here, and by mailing to any person who has joined the interest list. Habitat will also host two informational meetings at the beginning of the application release. This is meant to help the community understand the program requirements and how to successfully complete an application.
Applications are currently being accepted. For more information open the Applicant Flier.
