How Progressive Home Ownership works

Progressive Home Ownership is a hand up, not a handout. As well as a clear housing need, applicants need to show a willingness to partner with Habitat and have the potential to successfully shift to home ownership.

1. Families apply, are interviewed, and agree to partner with Habitat for Humanity.

2. Homes are built, and selected families move in. The homes eventual purchase price is agreed.

3. Affordable rent is paid over the first five years. Rent, less Habitat’s costs, begin to build up a deposit.

4. Habitat continues to support families through life’s ups and downs.

5. After five years, families can purchase the home from Habitat, using their rent and value equity.
