Habitat for Humanity of La Salle-Bureau-Putnam Counties, Inc., the local Habitat affiliate of Habitat International, has available a new pre-qualification worksheet for potential homeowner applicants.

Interested individuals can complete this one-page worksheet to determine if they are eligible to apply for the Habitat for Humanity LBPC home build in 2024 in Princeton. A family has not yet been selected. Habitat for Humanity assists people with incomes below the area median income of $66,500 for a family of four or $87,800 for a family of five or more to purchase a new home with a no down-payment, low interest loan. The home, built partially through donations, volunteer labor and the purchaser’s investment of sweat-equity hours, is financed with an affordable mortgage based on income.

The pre-qualification form can be filled out by any person interested in partnering with Habitat to build their own home. A review by the HHLBPC Qualified Loan Originator will quickly be able to determine if the individual can go forward with the complete application process or how they might qualify on a future application.

Interested parties are encouraged to apply soon to ensure consideration for all upcoming builds. The Pre-Qualification Worksheet is available at www.localhabitat.org.
