Own a Home
The goal of Habitat for Humanity-Spokane is to enter into partnership with families currently living in inadequate housing, who wish to own a home of their own, but have not been able to get the help they need anywhere else. Habitat families purchase their homes at cost directly from Habitat for Humanity with no profit, no interest loans.
The three primary qualifications for the Habitat for Humanity-Spokane program are the following:
- NEED: The family is now living in inadequate housing (i.e. subsidized, overcrowded, substandard, etc.) and have an income that falls between 25-60% of the Spokane area median income (see below)
- ABILITY TO PAY: The family must be able to repay the zero percent interest Habitat loan
- WILLINGNESS TO PARTNER: The family agrees to contribute at least 500 hours of "sweat equity" to Habitat
All interested persons must attend an information meeting to receive an application. Applications are not handed out at any other time (no exceptions).
