Does your household’s ANNUAL gross income fall within these limits for the number of people?

Each person over 18 must contribute 200 hours of "sweat equity." Sweat equity requires the home owner and family to contribute throughout the building process on not only their future home, but other home construction as well. Don't worry: no experience is needed. Our staff will teach you what you need to know!


All adults in the family must attend the 9 week Homebuyer Education class, which includes information about financial management, understanding credit and predatory lending, home maintenance, and much more. 


You will be required to make a down payment of $500-$1,250 on your house. 

Contact our staff during business hours with any questions, comments, or feedback!

We'd love to hear from you.
