How to Apply for a Habitat for Humanity House

If your family, or a family you know, is in need of decent, affordable housing, please contact the Habitat for Humanity affiliate serving your area.

Habitat affiliates are independent, locally run, nonprofit organizations. Each affiliate coordinates all aspects of Habitat home building in its local area, including partner family selection. Your local affiliate can give you information on the availability, size, costs, "sweat equity" work requirements and application process for Habitat houses in your area.

Every affiliate chooses its homeowners based on the same three criteria:

    • the applicants' level of need,

    • their willingness to become partners in the program

    • and their ability to repay the no-profit, no-interest loan.

Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing the families who receive Habitat houses.

To find contact information for affiliates in your area, use our affiliate search tool or call the Habitat for Humanity help line at (800)422-4828.
