Applying for the Program

The application process includes a written application and supporting documents (including tax returns, verifications of income, creditworthiness, employment, rent, etc.), a meeting with the Programs Manager, underwriting (or the process used to determine if the buyer can afford a Habitat home and qualify for a mortgage) and a home visit with the Homeowner Selection Committee to determine the need for housing.

All buyers are referred to as Partners on purpose. We must work together in partnership for Habitat’s mission of decent housing for all to be realized. This partnership begins at the time of application.

Applications are only available when space is available in the program. BCHfH will inform the community of available applications through submissions to the local newspaper, community organization partners, information posting here, and by mailing to any person who has expressed interest to Habitat.

Blount County Habitat for Humanity (BCHfH) will only review complete applications and on a first-qualified, first-served basis. BCHfH will stop reviewing applications once the program is full. So, please submit your complete application as soon as possible. Return applications in person at the Habitat main office 1017 Hampshire Dr. Maryville, office hours are 8:30am-4:30pm.
