Housing Services

Application & Selection Process

“I never missed a mortgage payment.  In 2007, when I paid off the house in full, my friends at Habitat threw me a party.  When I held the deed to my own house it was one of the proudest moments of my life.” – Phyllis Meredith, the Charlottesville Habitat affiliate's first homeowner

Application and Selection Process

In response to feedback we have received from past applicants and our commitment to continually improve our services to the community, we are making a very important change to our application process that we would like to make you aware of.

We will be transitioning from a rolling application process, where we accept and approve applications on a year-round basis, to an annual application process, where we will be accepting and approving applications once during a particular time each year. As a result of this transition, we would like to make you aware of a few important dates, events and other information:  

  • We will accept applications for the Habitat Homeownership and the Pathways to Housing programs through Friday, March 1, 2019. No applications will be accepted after this date.  
  • We will reopen the application process on Thursday, January 2, 2020.
  • If you are not sure that you would like to apply but would like to receive information about upcoming events and updates about the application process, please fill out the Homeowner Interest Form by clicking here.

If you have any questions about your application or need assistance filling it out please call 434-293-9066 and ask for Angel Turner.

Will host an array of homebuyer workshops and applicant information meetings throughout 2019 to help prepare community members for homeownership.  Please fill out the Homeownership Interest form if you would like more information.
