Habitat for Humanity announces Open House for home partner applicants

Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County is now accepting applications for new homeowners.

The Clarksville-based housing ministry partners with families who cannot qualify for a conventional mortgage due to income.

Habitat guides qualified applicants through its program to prepare them for home ownership and sells at cost through a 0% interest mortgage. 

Habitat will hold an Open House for home partner applicants on Saturday, June 1.

The event will include a program overview by Habitat President Kevin Underwood and a presentation on financial well-being by Jessica Hamel of Operation Hope.

Applicants are required to invest 250-400 hours of volunteer “sweat equity” into the construction of their home (depending on family size), and complete homebuyer education classes.

The application event is Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 10 am at Habitat for Humanity headquarters, located inside the ReStore at 404 Madison St. in Clarksville.

“Applicants must be county residents for a minimum of 12 months, must demonstrate the need for housing, the ability to pay a monthly mortgage, and be a willing to partner in the building and homeowner education process.” Said Underwood.

Habitat for Humanity does business in accordance with federal fair housing laws.
