Qualifying Criteria for Habitat Homeownership
We choose households on three main criteria:
1. Need for Housing – your current housing is inadequate in some way or you’re paying too much of your income for rent.
2. Ability to Pay – you must be able to pay a mortgage that includes principal, interest, taxes and insurance. Your household income needs to be at least $30,000/annually and not more than $68,700 which is 35-80 percent of Area Median Income (AMI). Even if your income is in that range, you are not guaranteed to be selected for our program.
3. Willingness to Partner – our families aren’t customers or clients – they are our partners! You must be willing to contribute hours of sweat equity (time building your home).
The Iverson Family and the Kath Family are busily putting in their sweat equity hours on their homes! We hope to be done with both by February/March of 2020!
