Habitat for Humanity Maui provides low income families with the opportunity to own a decent home with an affordable, no interest mortgage. Our Partner Families are required to help with the build of their home called “sweat equity” and work alongside other family members, friends, and community members. We offer families a HAND UP not a hand out.
Why become a Habitat Maui homeowner?
Affordable: Habitat Maui homes are sold based on your family size and income. This helps ensure that your monthly mortgage payments will be manageable.
Stability:The safe and secure environment of a home provides you and your family the foundation to build wealth and invest in your future.
Education: As part of our homeownership program, you will learn the skills to manage your debt and budget for your future home through group workshops and one-on-one credit counseling.
Do you qualify for a Habitat Maui Home?
To purchase a Habitat Maui home, you must meet these three requirements:
- Need for affordable housing: Prospective Habitat homeowners must demonstrate a need for safe, affordable housing. Also, families must meet our income guidelines: Click here for the 2019 Habitat for Humanity Income Guidelines
Example: For a family of four, monthly gross income range is $2,468 to $6,508 or at least $29,620/yr
- Ability to Pay: Applicants must have the ability to repay us the interest free loan. Mortgage payments are cycled back into the community to help build more Habitat houses.
- Willingness to Partner: Once selected, Habitat homeowners must partner with us throughout the process. This partnership includes performing sweat equity and helping to build their own home or the homes of others in our homeownership program. Sweat equity includes taking homeownership classes or performing volunteer work in our Habitat ReStore.
