The application process allows a family to demonstrate their willingness to partner by completing the application and by demonstrating their financial capacity to afford a no-interest mortgage and need for suitable housing. Applicants will submit copies of their income, housing, debts, bills and any other information supporting their desire to partner with Habitat. The Family Selection Committee reviews applications every month. Qualifications are listed on our website – go to www.habitatmctn.org and click Homeownership.
Partner families accepted into the Habitat Homeownership program contribute between 300 and 500 hours of ‘sweat equity’ by working on the construction of their and other Habitat homes, through homeowner education seminars, financial counseling, working at the ReStore, supporting Habitat events, and ensuring their children maintain high grades during this exciting time in their family’s life.
Applications are available Monday – Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Applications are also available outside the office and at the ReStore. Call the Affiliate office at 931-645-4222 with any questions.
