2021 Pre-Application for Homeownership

Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity Opens 2021 Pre-Application for Homeownership

PITMAN, NJ (Wednesday, September 01, 2021) — On Wednesday, September 1, 2021, Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity released the pre-application for its Homeownership Program.  Applications will be available on Gloucester County Habitat’s website only at https://gc-habitat.org/homeownership/qualify/

Gloucester County Habitat builds homes in partnership with families who have the financial and personal capacity to be homeowners, but who cannot qualify for conventional financing. Habitat leverages volunteer labor and donations of funding and materials to complete the construction of its homes.

Gloucester County Habitat’s Homeownership Program is not a handout. Eligible applicants must have current housing need, be able to pay for closing cost, and make monthly mortgage payment. Families need to be willing to partner with Habitat to accomplish sweat-equity hours and other requirements, like completing financial education classes. Habitat homes are sold to participants of its Homeownership Program for no profit. The sale is financed with an affordable mortgage loan. These mortgage payments are then recycled to build more homes.

Potential partner families are required to review income guidelines (gc-habitat.org/income-guidelines) and qualify before applying at: gc-habitat.org/home-ownership/qualify/

 Post 9/11 Veterans are encouraged to apply.

For more information on the Homeownership Program please email info@gchabitat.wpengine.com.
