Housing


“We build STRENGTH, STABILITY, AND SELF-RELIANCE
through shelter.”


In order to start the process for a Habitat Home, please attend one of our required informational meetings.Homeownership classes

Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties is a nonprofit organization that partners with local low-income families to help them build or renovate, and then buy, their own homes.  Habitat homes are simple, decent, safe, and affordable.

Homes from Habitat for Humanity are affordable for our partner families because:

  • 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

Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties uses three basic criteria to select our partner families. We will review each family’s:

  1. Need for better housing
  2. Willingness to partner with Habitat
  3. Income and ability to pay for a Habitat home

PROCESS

The homeowner application and selection process takes place in conjunction with new construction projects.  Therefore, the process may take up to a few months to complete and includes several steps:

1) Informational Sessions Held

First of all, interested applicants must attend an Informational Session where members of the Family Services Committee discuss current housing opportunities, explain the application process, distribute applications and answer questions.

The dates for this required informational meeting include:

  • DECEMBER 4TH 6 PM TO 8 PM
    North Davis County Library
    562 S 1000 E
    Clearfield UT 84015
  • DECEMBER 5TH 6 PM TO 8 PM

2) Applications Are Submitted and Reviewed

Secondly, applications may be dropped off or sent into the Habitat office on or before the published deadline.  Our volunteer Family Support Services reviews applications for completeness and verifies that applicants are eligible based on our eligibility criteria.

3) Home Interviews

Third of all, members of the Family Services Committee schedule home interviews with eligible applicants to further verify eligibility.

4) Presentation To Board Of Directors

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

5) Selection of Partner Family

Lastly, eligible applicants are chosen to become Habitat partner families.  These prospective homeowners join the Family Partnership Program, when they will attend a first time home buyer’s course, work on their own homes, and learn valuable financial and home improvement skills to complete required sweat equity hours!
