Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County’s Homeowner program begins with an application during and orientation session (times vary).
After completing the application and paying the $50 application fee, the Selection team processes applications, which are approved or denied based on specific requirements and qualifications for the program. Applicants must continue to qualify throughout the home build process.
If your application is approved, you become a Homeowner-in-Process (HIP). Once approved, you are required to begin a minimum of 250 sweat equity volunteer hours. You must also attend all homeownership readiness classes with a certified HUD counselor.
