The application process includes a written application and supporting documents (like tax returns, verifications of income, creditworthiness, employment, rent, etc.), 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 Selection Committee to determine the need for housing and Board of Director approval. Due to COVID, Habitat may modify the application process to ensure the safety of volunteers, applicants, and staff.
All buyers are referred to as Partners on purpose. We must work together in partnership to realize Habitat’s mission of decent housing for all. This partnership begins at the time of application.
