Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) is once again accepting applications from low-income families throughout the greater Los Angeles area to become partner homebuyers. Our newest home buying opportunities are in the Washington neighborhood of Long Beach, where we will soon break ground on 10 new houses.
Anyone interested in becoming a partner homeowner should attend one of our information sessions [English flyer] [hoja español], which will be held on weeknights and Saturday mornings in April and May. Priority will be given to the first 100 applicants.
The deadline to apply is 5pm on Friday, May 31. Applicants must be low-income, first-time homebuyers with good credit and a demonstrated need for affordable housing. In addition to the monthly mortgage payments, partner homeowners are responsible for the down payment. They must also contribute up to 500 hours of sweat equity, working alongside our construction staff to build their future Habitat home and the homes of other Habitat homebuyers.
For nearly 30 years Habitat LA has helped hardworking individuals and families achieve the American dream of owning their first home. We don’t give away our homes; we sell them to qualifying partner homebuyers at no profit and finance them with loans that ensure the homebuyer has an affordable mortgage payment each month.
