The Program

Blount County Habitat for Humanity (BCHfH) builds and sells homes to eligible buyers in the Blount County community. This is made possible with the very hard work of the buyers, volunteer labor, grants, donors and sponsors. BCHfH does not offer 1st mortgage loans. All BCHfH homes are purchased using affordable 1st mortgage loans from other approved lenders. BCHfH’s Homeownership program works with eligible buyers to prepare for a mortgage loan application and homeownership.

The homeownership program offers many benefits:

  1. Free help preparing for a mortgage loan
  2. Help with closing costs
  3. In-house down payment assistance grant for those eligible
  4. Free homebuyer education
  5. Free financial management mentoring
  6. Free credit counseling if needed


Non-proselytizing policy
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
