Habitat Montgomery County Home Assistance Application Workshop

By  | 

June is National Homeownership month, and Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County (Habitat MCTX) is hosting an application workshop Saturday, June 25th, at the Montgomery County Central Library in Conroe from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Interested individuals or families can apply for home repairs or affordable housing at the workshop.

Habitat’s homeownership program is a partnership with families to build a safer and affordable place that they can call home. When applicants are accepted into the program, they agree to partnership with Habitat to complete 350 hours of “sweat equity” by working on their own home, on houses of other Habitat partner families, take required homeowner classes, and work at the Habitat ReStore.

Eligibility requirements to apply for the homeownership program include:

  • Agree to partner with Habitat MCTX
  • Meet minimum income of $23,000
  • Proof of continuous employment for 12 (twelve) months
  • Clear required background check
  • Complete sweat equity of 350 hours in lieu of down payment

Habitat’s home repair program offers individuals and families relief from leaky roofs, broken windows, plumbing problems, and other small-critically needed repairs. These repairs can also include weatherization of your home to reduce home energy cost and increase home energy efficiency.
