How to apply
Check the homeownership brochure linked on the right-hand side of this page to see if you meet the basic program criteria including income and residency. If you do, you may call the Habitat for Humanity of North Idaho office at 762-HOME (4663) to get more information. We do not accept applications when there are enough clients in the program to fill our anticipated construction volume. We do not operate a waiting list, but you can give your contact information to us so we can notify you when we can accept more applications.
Orientation meetings are available prior to submitting an application. These meetings provide information about the application process, timelines, and help when filling out your application. We can also answer any questions you may have about the program.
After you submit your completed applications and a credit report is processed, your application is reviewed and we will contact you to schedule an interview and see if we can form a partnership.
About Money and Home Ownership
Many times we find families that can use help in budgeting and home maintenance to ensure their ownership continues satisfactorily. Training sessions such as plumbing, landscaping, and budgeting are set up to support the families. In turn, Habitat expects applicants to attend those sessions.
Also, a family partner is assigned to assist newly-selected families in getting started. They mentor, advocate for their family, and find help when needed. The family partner becomes the link between the family and the Affiliate.
We want to establish a strong partnership to ensure long term success and to further Habitat for Humanity’s goals of lending a helping hand up.
