How does it work?
“Disaster Relief” applicants must meet the same three fundamental principles as other Habitat for Humanity families: they must demonstrate a need for adequate shelter, fall within our income guidelines and be willing to partner with Habitat for the completion of designated sweat equity hours.
Families must provide the following documents: • Driver’s license/ID of applicant (if applicant isn’t the homeowner provide theirs as well)• Income (pay stubs, alimony, child support, benefits, etc.) for anyone/everyone living at home and earning income• W-2 & 1040’s for 2018 & 2017• If self-employed, provide the past 2 years of profit-loss statements• Bank statements (3 months checking accts, 6 months savings acct) • Evidence mortgage has been paid off (if still paying, evidence of current mortgage balance)• Pictures of damaged area
