To apply for a home, you must attend an informational meeting. Upcoming application meeting dates are posted on our home buyer page. If you do not see an informational meeting listed, it means that we do not have one scheduled at this time. We typically have one meeting per year in each of our areas–Cherokee, Lanier Area (Forsyth, & Dawson Counties). You should attend the meeting in the area in which you would like to live.
Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia does not provide immediate housing assistance. Habitat homeowners wait between 6 months and 2 years in queue before purchasing and moving into their homes. If you need immediate help with your housing situation, please visit the Other Local Agencies page or you can call 211 from any phone to reach United Way.
PLEASE NOTE: We will only accept candidates who have lived or worked in our service area for at least one year. The counties in our service area are Cherokee, Dawson, Forsyth and North Fulton. We no longer build in North Fulton; all new homes will be constructed in either Cherokee or Forsyth County. Please review the information below to learn about our basic program requirements, including the income required to own a home.

The first step in our process is to review the requirements of our program listed above. Review all of the general requirements INCLUDING the income required for the last 24 months (based on the size of your family). Please note that good credit and repayment history is a very important requirement too.
One recent change to our program requirements: We will only accept candidates who have lived or worked in our service area for at least one year. The counties in our service area are Cherokee, Dawson, Forsyth, and North Fulton.
Once you have reviewed all of the requirements above, if you believe you might qualify, you must participate in a preliminary phone interview.
During this phone interview, we will ask a series of questions to review your basic eligibility for our program. If we determine you meet the basic requirements, we will schedule an informational meeting with a member of our Family Services staff in our office for a date in the near future. The informational meeting will give you a complete explanation of our program and provide you with answers to your questions. At the conclusion of the informational meeting, we will provide you with an application to complete and return with all of the documents we require.
The entire process takes about one year before an approved applicant will have a home built and ready for move-in.
Our Program has approved a sufficient number of future homeowners for the next several months. It is important we not over commit our ability to the community. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
