Families are selected based on three criteria - all three criteria must be met for a family to be selected.

 

Need for Adequate Shelter

You must be living in substandard housing.  Perhaps the house is too small (overcrowded), unsafe, unhealthy (mold, vermin), overpriced, or lacks essential functions (heat, etc)

 

Willingness to Partner

​You must be willing to earn a minimum of 200 hours in sweat equity, attend meetings and/or classes, and treat Habitat staff and volunteers with respect.  You must also be willing to buy the house from Alliance Area Habitat when it is completed.

 

Ability to Pay

You must have a stable, steady income that is sufficient to cover your monthly expenses and pay down any existing debt.  We typically select people with incomes at 30% - 60% of the median area income. If you have declared bankruptcy, it must be discharged 2 full years before you can be approved for Habitat homeownership.
