Housing

We build more than a house.
Together we can make a difference.

Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties partners with local low-income families to help them build or renovate homes. Homeowners then buy their Habitat Homes at affordable monthly payments. Habitat homes are simple, decent, safe, and affordable.

We only build where there are land opportunities. Either the land is donated from community members, or we purchase them ourselves.

HABITAT HOMES ARE AFFORDABLE

  • Our families and other unpaid volunteers provide much of the construction labor.
  • We sell our homes to qualified low-income families at no-profit prices.
  • We provide no-interest home loans.
  • Our home loans offer affordable monthly payments.

3 CRITERIA
FOR SELECTING OUR PARTNER FAMILIES

We will review each application to select our partner families.
The three criteria includes:

  • Need for better housing
  • Willingness to partner with Habitat
  • Income and ability to pay for a Habitat home

PLEASE ENSURE...

Please make sure that you meet all the criteria and eligibility requirements.
Please look down below to read the descriptions.

The process may take several weeks if not months to complete. These are the several steps that must be completed:

  • INFORMATIONAL SESSIONS HELD

First of all, interested applicants must attend a required informational class. During this meeting, the Family Services Committee will explain the housing process, requirements, and opportunities. Additionally, applications will be distributed at this time and questions will be answered.

  • APPLICATIONS ARE SUBMITTED AND REVIEWED

DO NOT turn in an application if you have not gone to a required informational class from HFHWD. Applications may be filled out online or printed out and filled. Applications may be dropped off or mailed to our main office on or before the deadline. Our Family Services Committee then reviews applications for completeness. Applicants will be verified and determined if they are eligible.

  • HOME INTERVIEWS

Third of all, members of the Family Services Committee will schedule home interviews. This will allow the committee to verify eligibility. 

  • PRESENTATION TO BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Furthermore, eligible applicants are presented to the Board of Directors for final approval. 

  • SELECTION OF PARTNER FAMILY

Lastly, eligible applicants are chosen to become Habitat partner families. These homeowners join the Habitat Family Partnership Program. Habitat partner families will first attend first-time home buyer courses and budgeting classes. Habitat partner families will start to apply and complete their “sweat equity” hours.
