Habitat for Humanity Savannah is opening its 2013 Habitat Homeownership process to pre-qualification applications on January 14, 2013. Eligibility is limited to Chatham County residents who have completed and submitted their applications prior to the 5 p.m., January 21, 2013 deadline. Applications submitted following that deadline will not be considered.
Applications are available electronically at www.habitatsavannah.org/ Apply.html or by visiting the organization’s 1106 E. 70th Street office. A receptacle containing applications is placed on the organization’s front porch during the preapplication acceptance period – January 14 through January 21, 2013.
The Family Selection Committee screens applicants on the basis of three criteria: demonstrated need; assessment of current residence as substandard; and evidence of financial ability to repay a mortgage.
Selected candidates will receive a communication from the Family Selection Committee inviting their participation in a mandatory information session, scheduled for February 2013.
