Deadline to apply to purchase Habitat for Humanity home is December 31

Posted by HBC Newsdesk December 18, 2014

Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties is currently accepting applications through December 31 for a single family home to be built in Winona in 2015.

To qualify for a Habitat home, the family must currently be living in substandard housing, be unable to obtain a conventional loan from a bank, have the ability to pay a monthly mortgage, and be willing to partner with Habitat. Before moving into a Habitat home, families contribute a minimum of 300 hours of “sweat-equity” ( time worked on the construction of the house), and must make a modest down payment.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical, grassroots, Christian organization, dedicated to eliminating poverty housing. Habitat partners with homeowner families, members of the local community, and volunteers to build simple, decent, affordable houses. The houses are sold to those in need at no profit, through no-interest loans. Habitat generally serves families who would fall in the 30% to 60% of median income for Winona County.

Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties is pledged to the letter and spirit of the U.S. policy for achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin.

Application deadline is December 31, 2014. Information on Habitat’s homebuyer program can be found on-line at www.habitatwinona.org. Interested homebuyers can request an application by going on-line or calling the Habitat for Humanity office at 507-457-0003.
