Chairperson: Judith Ham
Our Family Selection Committee is responsible for conducting the application process. The three main requirements for qualification to become a Habitat homeowner are:
Need for Adequate Housing
Ability to pay a Habitat Mortgage
Willingness to Partner
The Habitat for Humanity program is open to families whose total household income is between 50% to 75% of median income for the area as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The 2015 chart of income limits can be viewed here. 2016 HUD income limits
After conducting a home visit to assess the applicant’s need for adequate housing, the committee diligently reviews the information in the application and the required income documentation and makes their recommendation to the Board of Directors. After careful consideration, the Board makes the final decision for approval.
