Apply for a House

Each Habitat affiliate selects “partner families” to become Habitat homeowners. Habitat for Humanity follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Partner families are always selected based on their level of need, ability to pay and willingness to partner.

Applicants are required to meet several qualifications to ensure success. Each Habitat affiliate has its own guidelines. In general, prospective homeowners must:

  • Be citizens or legal residents

  • Prove steady income

  • Have good credit

  • Earn a monthly income that falls within minimum and maximum limits, depending on household size

  • Sustain a savings account over a specified period of time

In addition, each partner family is required to:

  • Invest sweat-equity hours in building his/her home and others

  • Make an affordable down payment

  • Make timely mortgage payments

  • Attend homeowner education classes
