BECOME A HOMEOWNER
Habitat affiliates are independent, locally run, nonprofit organizations.
Thirty-two Habitat affiliates in Minnesota build homes in partnership with families.
Each Habitat affiliate coordinates all aspects of Habitat home building in its local area, including partner family selection.
Your local Habitat affiliate can give you information on the availability, size, costs, “sweat equity” work requirements, income eligibility requirements and the application process for Habitat houses in your area.
For contact information for the Habitat affiliate for the community in which you want to live, see a map of Affiliates in Minnesota, then select your area to get in touch with that affiliate.
Families are selected based on three main criteria:
- Ability to pay
- Willingness to partner
Habitat for Humanity builds homes with families who demonstrate need and willingness to partner with Habitat by helping to construct their own homes. The hands-on experience of home construction is empowering for home buyers, providing a sense of pride, ownership and investment in the communities they help to build. Habitat homeowners then repay the cost of the home by making monthly mortgage payments.
