The first step to homeownership with Habitat is to attend an Applicant Information Meeting. You will find out about the process Habitat uses to select qualified applicants for the program, the houses we build, and the Habitat-Homebuyer-Community Partnership that makes it affordable.

Income Requirements: After looking at the income guidelines chart if you aren’t certain your entire household income qualifies, call (828) 328-4663 ext. 310 and request a screening form to determine income eligibility. This step is not necessary and it will be done again once you apply.

Note: We can only determine income eligibility based on your current income. Any changes – up or down – could change your eligiblity status.

Reservations & Attendance: Attendance at an AIM is required for your application to be given consideration. Space is limited. Reservations are not required, but guarantees you an application packet, should you choose to have one. No child care is provided, so please make your own child care arrangements.

Schedule Conflicts: If you have a work schedule conflict with the AIM date, and have already had your income checked for program eligibility, you may call Habitat Catawba Valley for an alternate time.

To reserve your spot, call Hannah Spahn at 828-328-4663 (ext. 310).
