Selection Criteria

Selection Criteria

Habitat uses three criteria to determine whether or not a family is ready to take part in the homeownership program.

  • Need.

    Families often need a home because their current housing isn't viable. It may be overcrowded, too expensive, structurally unsound, or located in a dangerous neighborhood.

  • Ability to pay.

    You must be able to afford a monthly mortgage payment. See the chart below for some guidelines.

  • Willingness to partner.

    Habitat homeowners work on their own homes as well as homes for others.
