Habitat to accept applications for sixth home

The Grady County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity is looking for a local family who is interested in owning their own home.
“We are looking for stable families who really want to work with us to become a homeowner. Habitat helps people who don’t have enough income to qualify for a mortgage through traditional means, but who are willing to work hard to own their own home,” said Habitat President Bob Anderson.
Applications will be accepted next month from applicants who have lived in Grady County for a minimum of one year and have an approximate annual income between $9,750 and $42,890.
According to Habitat officials a family of four people must have annual income of $13,900 to qualify and the maximum income for a family of four would be $32,470. Larger families with greater income can qualify.
Interested people can apply in person during one of the open sessions scheduled next month. Appointments are not necessary, but applicants must  bring documents to verify income and debt.
The two dates applications will be accepted are Friday, Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., and Wednesday, Nov. 17, from noon until 5 p.m. at the Grady Room  of Roddenbery Memorial Library.
Applicants must bring copies of pay stubs, government benefit payments, auto loans, finance company loans, credit card or other debt accounts, phone bills or any other account where you make regular payments.
Habitat officials will analyze applicants’ ability to pay for the home by looking at income, credit history and current debt obligations.
Habitat for Humanity is a faith-based, nonprofit organization that builds basic housing and provides no-interest mortgages for citizens in need.
The local chapter of Habitat has built five homes and this will be the sixth.
