I am expecting a raise in salary from my current job; will Habitat take that into consideration when reviewing my application? 2013-01-28T22:05:28+00:00

If you receive a raise before Intake and are able to provide supporting documents we will use this when determining your eligibility. If you cannot provide the proper documentation then we will only be able to use the salary provided on your employment verification form.

I have a bad credit history, how will that effect my application? 2013-01-28T22:05:18+00:00

Your credit history is a good indicator of your ability to meet your financial obligations and therefore Habitat takes credit reports into account when determining an applicant’s eligibility. Fortunately, we do not look at any outstanding medical payments from an applicant’s credit history.

I submitted an application in the past and was denied, can you use my old application? 2013-01-28T22:04:51+00:00

No, Habitat requires each applicant to submit a new application each time they apply or reapply to Habitat. However, we will gladly accept any copies of birth certificates, driver’s licenses, and social security cards that you may still have from the last time you applied.

The income I receive at my current job does not fall within the income guidelines, does this make me ineligible to apply? 2013-01-28T22:04:35+00:00

Habitat takes into consideration any non-work income that applicants receive (SSI, food stamps, child support, etc.) If you fall within the income guidelines after we calculate non work income, then you may be eligible. If you do not fall within these guidelines, you will be asked to reapply if and when your income falls within our guidelines.

I am currently living with my parents/friend/family member and therefore do not pay a set amount for rent each month. What should I do with the landlord reference form? 2017-05-18T10:31:36+00:00

In this situation, we ask that the person you are living with fill out the Landlord Reference Form. You will also need to complete section four of the application describing the house you currently live in. Please explain your situation in the given space. You may also make a note if you help pay for rent, cable or utilities.

I am a permanent resident in the United States but my spouse is not. Can we still apply to Habitat for Humanity? 2013-01-28T22:04:15+00:00

Yes, you may still apply to Habitat for Humanity. Habitat only requires the primary wage earner to be a citizen or permanent resident. However, we will require a birth certificate or resident alien card from your spouse and children.

I am not married but I would like to apply for a Habitat home with my girlfriend/boyfriend/fiancé, will that effect my application? 2013-01-28T22:03:40+00:00

As stated in the previous question, Habitat for Humanity does not discriminate on the basis of marital status. However, co-signing on a home makes both applicants responsible for mortgage payments of 20-30 years. Co-signing on a home also gives both applicants equal ownership in the home. Income will also need to be reported for both applicants.

My spouse and I are separated or going through a divorce, how will that affect my application? 2015-07-30T10:29:52+00:00

Habitat For Humanity does not take marital status into consideration when making a decision on an application. However, it is important to note that your spouse will hold 50% interest in any property that you acquire while you are still married.
