Homeowner Information Meeting — Session 2

You can be a homeowner! Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County can help.

We will be accepting applications for our Homeownership Program from August 5 to August 16, 2024.

Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County believes in the power of affordable homeownership to change lives from the individual to the collective community. We actively work to remove financial barriers and social inequalities to provide access to affordable homeownership for everyone who seeks it.

Through our Homeownership Program, we provide the coaching, education, and support to guide you through the home-buying journey. To be eligible for the Habitat Homeownership Program, applicants must have lived and/or worked in Monroe County for a minimum of one year. Additionally, applicants must demonstrate a need for housing, an ability to pay an affordable monthly mortgage, and a willingness to partner—a commitment we call “sweat equity.” As part of the Habitat homeownership process, it is a requirement that you and each member of your household over 18 years of age commit to completing 250 sweat equity volunteer hours. To apply:

  1. Read the program criteria
  2. Attend an information meeting
  3. Complete the application

Homeowner Information Meetings
