Apply Now for a Palouse Habitat Home!
Can you afford $500.00* a month to own your own home?
A home of your own could cost just that. Palouse Habitat for Humanity builds houses in partnership with families that cannot otherwise afford their own home.
A Habitat home is a hand up, not a hand out. Habitat partner families help build their home with Palouse Habitat volunteers, save up a down payment, and then buy the home from Palouse Habitat for Humanity with a zero interest mortgage based on the construction cost.
YOUR MONTHLY PAYMENT DEPENDS ON:
- the size of house built
- the cost of the land
- the cost of building materials, permits, fees, etc.
Can you qualify?
1.You must have lived or worked in Whitman or Latah County for one year or longer.
2. Your family must currently be living in inadequate housing, for example:
- Problems with structure, water, electrical, heating or sewage systems
- Rent that is more than 30% of household income
Family Size and Gross annual income:
- 1 member $ 12,950 – $ 25,900
- 2 members $ 14,800 – $ 29,600
- 3 members $ 16,650 – $ 33,300
- 4 members $ 18,500 – $ 37,000
- 5 members $ 20,000 – $ 40,000
- 6 members $ 21,500 – $ 43,000
- 7 members $ 22,950 – $ 45,900
- 8 members $ 24,450 – $ 48,900
4.You must be willing to help build the home. Habitat requires 300 hours of "sweat equity" for a single parent household, and 500 hours for a two-parent family. Time can be spent building the home and volunteering in the community.
5. You must be able to live in Albion, WA.
Deadline for Application is March 1, 2013.
