Winona, MN- Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties is now accepting applications for a single family home to be built in Winona.

To qualify for a Habitat home, the family must currently be living in substandard housing, be unable to obtain a conventional loan from a bank, have the resources to pay a monthly mortgage, and be willing to partner with Habitat. Before moving into a Habitat home, families contribute a minimum of 300 “sweat-equity” hours, time worked on the construction of the house, and must make a modest down payment.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical, grassroots, Christian organization, dedicated to eliminating poverty housing. Habitat partners with homeowner families, the members of the local community, and volunteers to build simple, decent, affordable houses. The houses are sold to those in need at no profit, through no-interest loans. Income requirements are “total household yearly income” minimum of around $13,000.00 and maximum around $52,800.00

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin.

Application deadline is March 15, 2013. Information on Habitat’s homebuyer program can be found on-line at www.habitatwinona.org. Interested homebuyers can request an application by going on-line or calling Habitat for Humanity office at 507-457-0003.
