Since public health regulations closed our offices to the public, the application drive was postponed. The new start date to receive applications is Wednesday, July 1, 2020, and the deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, July 31, 2020. New protocols will be in place this year to limit personal contact during the application process. We will do our best to serve applicants without compromising public health.
Since the informational meetings on 2020 applications were canceled, we will provide this information in alternative ways, including an online option. In the meantime, we encourage applicants to review the application checklist and start gathering their application materials. Any updates will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
Applications will be made available starting Monday, June 29, 2020, but applications will not be accepted until July 1. Applications can be downloaded from the website. Application packets will also be available at the Habitat ReStore, but store hours may be limited. For other ways to receive an application, and for any other questions, reach out to Habitat’s Family Services Coordinator, Lisa Ross, at 605-274-6290.
Our 2020 income guidelines include an expanded income range for eligible veterans and teachers. To qualify for the homeownership program, applicants must have a need, the ability to pay, and a willingness to partner, as detailed in our program selection criteria.
