Application Process

Steps toward Habitat Homeownership 

STEP 1: Attend an Information Session

At this session, you will hear information about our program and have an opportunity to ask questions about your eligibility with a trained volunteer. At the session, you will complete an eligibility form, if you haven't already, and leave the session with a list of documents that you need to gather in order to submit an application.

Check HFHGCC's events calendar for the next information session. 

STEP 2: Request an Application During Application Period 

You can visit the Habitat for Humanity office by appointment or request a copy by email or mail. You must return the fully completed 8-page application and provide all required supplemental documents by the Application Period deadline. If you need any assistance completing the form, you can contact Habitat staff.  If the documents you return are not complete, your application will not be considered.

STEP 3:  Habitat Staff Reviews Application

A staff member will review your application and supporting documentation, including the provided credit report.  If you meet the qualifications and the application is complete, your application will be accepted for consideration.

STEP 4: Application Components Are Finalized

Any outstanding documentation will be collected by a staff member.  At the appropriate time, the application will be distributed to the Family Selection Committee for review.

STEP 5: Family Selection Committee Home Visit

Two members of the Family Selection Committee will contact you to set up a time to visit you and your family in your current home to verify residents of the house, examine financial responsibility, determine housing need, and evaluate the applicant’s understanding of Habitat’s mission and purpose. 

STEP 6: Evaluation by Family Selection Committee

After the interview, the applicant will be presented at the next Family Selection Committee meeting.  After the presentation, the applicant(s) will be evaluated in five (5) general categories: employment, financial responsibility, need, community and family involvement, and passion/willingness to partner.

STEP 7: Final Review

After the Committee meeting, the application for homeownership and the Family Selection Committee’s recommendation will be presented to the Habitat Board and Executive Director for final decision on approval.
