Due to holiday interruptions, GDM Habitat for Humanity is pausing the processing of applications. In the meantime, please add your information to our interest list and our team will reach out to you when we resume.
We process applications on a first come, first served basis. Applications will be reviewed for complete and accurate information (i.e. proof of income, etc.), and then we will reach out to you to discuss whether you qualify.
You do not need to have any income to qualify. There is, however, a maximum income. In order to qualify for the Home Preservation Program, the applicants’ gross household income must be no more than 60 percent of the Area Median Income for the number of people occupying the home. The chart below shows the maximum income for each household size.
Seniors and veterans may have a higher income threshold to qualify. Contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
In order to qualify for the Home Preservation Program, the applicants’ assessed home value must be no more than $225,000. You can find your home’s assessed value by visiting your county assessor’s website (Polk County, Dallas County, Jasper County) and searching for your address.
Rural property in Dallas County and Jasper County may be assessed differently. Contact our team at email@example.com to learn more.
The timeline for repairs depends on what repairs are needed and the time at which the homeowner applies. Upon completion of application and qualification process, repairs are typically completed within 120 days or less.
If a deferred, no-interest payment is required, then payment is needed only when the house is sold, even if this is decades in the future. Depending on the scope of work, a service fee and other payments may be required when repairs are agreed upon.
