Watauga Habitat Looking for Future Homeowners

Watauga County Habitat for Humanity will be accepting applications for their affordable housing program until March 31st, 2019. Eligibility criteria for a Habitat home include a housing need, the ability to pay an affordable mortgage and a willingness to partner with Habitat. Homeowners assist in building their own home and the homes of others and attend educational workshops on topics such as financial literacy and home maintenance, so they are well prepared to be successful homeowners. The home being built will be a 3-bedroom house.
