APPLY FOR HOME OWNERSHIP

CURRENT OPENINGS:

We have no openings now. Future openings will be announced here.

If you would like to be notified by email about upcoming selections, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

HOW TO APPLY:

Application forms are only available at the mandatory homeowner application orientation meetings which are offered at the beginning of each new project. An in-depth review of the applicants’ finances, need and willingness to partner will be conducted by the Homeowner Relations Team. The process will include income verification, a credit check, and personal visits and interviews by team members.

APPLICATION PROCESS:

  1. All potential applicants must attend a new homeowner orientation. These meetings are held at the beginning of each household selection period. Applications are only available at the conclusion of these meetings.
  2. Submit the application with all of the required documents by the due date noted on the application
  3. Habitat calculates your income, pulls a credit report and reviews your finances.
  4. After an applicant qualifies financially, a home visit is conducted. Two members of the Family Selection Committee will arrange a time to visit and interview at the applicant’s current residence. All members of the household must be present at this meeting. The need for our housing program and the applicant’s willingness to participate are discussed at this meeting.
  5. All fully qualified applicants are then entered into a lottery for the available house(s).
  6. If you are picked at the lottery, a criminal background check will be run on all household members, aged 16 and above. A previous conviction may disqualify an applicant from homeownership. In determining eligibility, Morris Habitat for Humanity will consider several factors. Documents outlining the policy will be provided upon request.
  7. An in-take meeting is then held at the Habitat office where all paperwork is reviewed and signed.
