How To Apply
Am I Qualified?
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Habitat homeowner. We believe that everyone should have a safe, affordable place to call home.
Prospective Habitat homeowners must demonstrate a need for safe, affordable housing. Need will vary from community to community.
Once selected, Habitat homeowners must partner with us throughout the process. This partnership includes performing “sweat equity,” or helping to build their own home or the homes of others in our homeownership program. Sweat equity can also include taking homeownership classes or performing volunteer work in a Habitat ReStore. Homeowners must also be able and willing to pay an affordable mortgage. Mortgage payments are cycled back into the community to help build additional Habitat houses.
Can anyone apply to be a Habitat homeowner?
Yes. Habitat follows a nondiscriminatory policy of homebuyer selection. Neither race nor religion is a factor.
How do you apply for a Habitat house?
Habitat’s homeowner selection is managed at the local level. For more information or how you can apply, please contact your local Habitat, or call 1-800-HABITAT (1-800-422-4828).
