Criteria for Selection

Families are selected on three basic criteria:

Need for adequate housing; some examples: Overcrowded conditions, Deteriorated building conditions, Over 30% of income used for housing cost

Ability to pay the homes expenses (see below)

Willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity putting in 400 hours (sweat equity) toward building a home, attending workshops, and partnering with Habitat to share in the work of the organization.

Income Guidelines - These guidelines are one of the factors in determining the families ability to pay back the no profit mortage and other household expenses, while ensuring that our program is a program for low income families not served through other homeownership opportunities.
