Becoming a Homeowner

Who do we serve?

108 Center St. Habitat Partner Family

Habitat partners with people who meet three basic criteria: 

Need: Applicants will be eligible for our program if they are currently living in conditions that are not adequate based on size, structural condition, or safety concerns.  

Ability to Pay: Applicants must have a steady income to pay their mortgage. We serve people whose income is between 35% to 70% of the Monmouth County Area’s median income.

Willingness to participate as a partner with Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County: When selected you become a “partner family” in the Habitat movement. Your assistance in the construction of your home and the homes of others is called “sweat equity” and may include specific courses for new homeowners, clearing the lot, painting, helping with construction, providing food for volunteers, or working in the Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County office or Restore. To become a “partner family” you must complete 250-400 hours per adult of volunteer work with Monmouth County Habitat for Humanity which will count toward your total “sweat equity” contribution to be completed before becoming a homeowner.

  • You will be responsible for maintenance of your house from the time you move into your home.  This includes interior and exterior repairs as well as proper yard maintenance.
  • You will be responsible for repaying the purchase cost (with no interest) of your home in a timely manner so that other families can benefit from the Habitat for Humanity program. 
  • In addition you will be responsible for paying, through an escrow account that is part of your monthly payment, the yearly property taxes and the cost of homeowner’s insurance on an annual basis.

In order to qualify, you must be a U.S. Citizen and reside in one of the following coverage areas: Aberdeen, Allentown, Atlantic Highlands, Colts Neck, Deal, Eatontown, Englishtown, Fair Haven, Farmingdale, Freehold Borough, Freehold Township, Hazlet, Highlands, Holmdel, Howell, Keansburg, Keyport, Little Silver, Long Branch, Manalapan, Marlboro, Matawan, Middletown, Millstone Township, Monmouth Beach, Morganville, Ocean Township, Oceanport, Red Bank, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury Township, Tinton Falls, Union Beach, and West Long Branch.
