How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in applying for a Habitat home. We are pleased to announce we will have one 2BR/1.5BA home available in Gold Bar, WA in June 2019 (date subject to change).

We have three homeowner candidate meetings scheduled. If you are interested in applying for this home, please choose one meeting from the list below.

Applications will be provided at each meeting. We do not maintain a waiting list of potential homeowners.

Please note that Habitat for Humanity sells homes to low income families. We do not give them away. We require candidate families have a dependable income stream and contribute 500 hours of volunteer time (sweat equity).

Candidate families must deposit sufficient funds to cover a portion of closing costs prior to purchasing the home. If the homeowner application is withdrawn for any reason, the deposit will be returned to the family.

Habitat for Humanity performs a criminal background inquiry and credit check for each applicant. We require proof of income (e.g., three months of payroll check stubs, copies of three years of tax returns). We also ask potential homeowners to provide letters of recommendation, landlord recommendations and employer verification.

Habitat for Humanity is not an emergency housing program. We require candidate families to live or work in Snohomish County and participate in our homeowner education program. We reserve the right to withdraw the application from consideration if the family no longer qualifies for a Habitat home.

We also require a home visit to the residence of the prospective family to evaluate need. After a candidate family has been selected, it takes approximately a year for the home to be completed.

Thank you again for your interest. Be sure to reserve your spot today by registering for one of the homeowner candidate meetings!
