How to Apply

Are you ready to become a Habitat homeowner? Have you read what’s expected of our homeowners?

If you are interested in a Habitat home a Preliminary Screening Form must be completed.  The Preliminary Screening Form is used to determine if you are a potential candidate.  Potential candidates will be contacted to complete a full length Housing Application.  The full length Housing Application requires documentation for the information provided on the application (ex. Federal and State Tax Returns, verification of all income, letter from employer, rent payment history, etc.).  A background check must also be performed.

Applicants should have all required documents when returning the Housing Application.  If all required documents are not included, Habitat will not accept your application.   Applications can be returned to the Habitat Office at 17505 US Hwy. 72, West or by mail to PO Box 217, Athens, AL  35612.

Applications are then reviewed.  Applicants are notified by mail of the outcome.

Please contact our office 256.230.6001 to find out if we are currently offering preliminary screening forms.
