The Selection Process
Habitat families are interviewed and selected by the Family Selection Committee using the following process:
Interested applicants attend a Family Selection Information Session, and Application Review Meeting and submit a complete application.
Applications are processed by the Family Selection Committee and either rejected or provisionally accepted based on the criteria of need, ability to pay (adequate income, manageable debt, plus good credit history) and willingness to partner (complete sweat equity hours and attend required classes.)
The Family Selection Committee schedules a home visit with provisionally accepted applicants for the purpose of gathering additional information.
Family selection is made based upon the three basic criteria with greatest need being the determining factor.
The Family Selection Committee presents applicant information to the Board of Directors for approval. Names are removed from applicant information sheets and are revealed to the Board after the vote is taken.
Selected families meet with Habitat representatives to review program and partnership requirements and discuss basic house design. Statements of understanding are signed at this time.
Selected families must complete 25-50 hours of sweat equity prior to the beginning of construction on their home. They must attend required homeowner education classes scheduled by DPCHFH.
The family will be able to move into the house when:
All sweat equity hours are completed
Required homeowner education classes are completed
The $500 down payment is paid
The house is completed with all final inspections done.
