Apply for Habitat Home this Saturday
Grady County Habitat for Humanity is recruiting a small family, up to four members, for its next home. The house will be built on a lot with space limitations and will have two bedrooms. It will accommodate a single person or a couple with up to two children of the same sex.
Families who need larger houses should not apply at this time.
This will be the seventh home to be constructed here by the local Habitat for Humanity chapter.
Habitat for Humanity serves people in need of decent housing who are not eligible for conventional mortgages and who want to become homeowners. Requirements for selection include ability to pay, willingness to partner in building, and need for suitable housing.
Applicants must have lived in Grady County for at least one year. A family of four people with an annual income $13,900 can qualify for a no interest loan. The upper income limit for a family of four is $32,470. Smaller families with less income are eligible.
Eligible families must apply in person. Applications will be taken on Saturday, Dec. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or Wednesday, Dec. 14, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Grady Room, Roddenbery Memorial Library. Appointments are not necessary, but applicants must bring documents to verify income and debt.
Habitat for Humanity will analyze applicants’ ability to pay for the home by looking at income, credit history and current debt obligations. 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.
The new Habitat home will be built on the last available undeveloped lot in the Bell Alley neighborhood.
Habitat for Humanity is a faith-based, nonprofit organization that builds basic housing and provides no-interest mortgages for citizens in need.
