BECOME A HOMEOWNER

HOMEOWNERSHIP

Thank you for your interest in partnering with us!  
 

River City Habitat for Humanity generally builds between 4-6 homes a year, so we normally accept applications into our program 1-2 times a calendar year.  When selecting partners in our program, we are looking for three things:  Need of Affordable Housing, Ability to Pay a home mortgage and Willingness to Partner with us.  

Phase 1
Individuals or families interested in becoming a Habitat homeowner must first fill out an Interest Form (online or in our office).  This form just asks for your current contact information and lets us know that you are interested in our program.  

Phase 2
When we are ready to accept applications, we will begin advertising that we are accepting applications and invite anyone interested in our program to attend an informational session. We will also contact everyone who has filled out an Interest Form but if you haven't filled out an Interest Form, you are still invited to attend.  This short, one hour session will provide you with all the details of our Habitat program, including the qualifications and expectations.  This is also your chance to ask questions and make sure that our program would be a good fit for you!  After the class, if you are interested in moving forward, we provide you with a full application packet to complete by a certain deadline.  

Phase 3
Applications are reviewed by our Family Selection Committee.  It may be several weeks before applications receive notice on the status of their homeownership application.  We will contact you by telephone if you are selected to move forward.  If you are not selected, we will notify you by mail.  They will be verifying your Ability to Pay a home mortgage. 

Phase 4
Two members from our Family Selection Committee will contact you and ask if they can come visit your current home for a quick tour.  They will be verifying your Need for Affordable Housing. 

Phase 5
If you are selected to move forward, you will be invited to the next Family Selection Committee meeting to meet with the members of that committee.  They will discuss your Willingness to Partner with us.  

Phase 6
If approved by the Family Selection Committee,  the final step in the process is to receive approval from our Board of Directors.  A member of the Family Selection Commtitee will present your application and story to our full Board.
