Take the First Step
Complete the homeownership program qualification form.
Step 2: Verification
If you qualify for the homeownership program, you will be asked to provide proof of residency and income.
Step 3: Orientation
After the qualification form has been reviewed and your proof of
residency and income are received, you will be invited to an orientation
where further requirements and next steps will be discussed.
Step 4: Selection
A home visit will be conducted by Habitat's Family Selection Team to
determine your need for housing. Their recommendation and the file of
each approved family will be presented for approval by the
Greenville's Board of Directors.
Step 5: Partnership
If approved for the program, you will begin completion of 200 "sweat
equity" volunteer hours and participation in 25 hours of classes in our
homeowner preparation program. Some of these can be completed online.
Step 6: The Match
After meeting a minimum of 75 hours of sweat equity, you will be
eligible to be matched with a sponsor and build site, and construction
on your home will begin.
Final Step: Homeownership!
Upon completion of all sweat equity hours and
payment of the homeowner portion of closing costs, you become a proud
Habitat homeowner, move into your home, and begin paying your mortgage.
You will participate in the dedication ceremony held when your home is completed.
