Application Process

Application Process

STEP 1: Attend an information session

At this session, you will hear information about our program and have an opportunity to ask questions about your eligibility with a trained volunteer. At the session, you will complete a Homebuyer Interest Form and leave the session with a list of documents that you need to gather in order to submit an application.

STEP 2: Telephone Conference with Habitat Staff

After attending an Information Session, you will pull one free credit report (note: each applicant must pull at least one credit report).  A staff member will contact you and review your Homebuyer Interest Form and your credit report.  If you are ready to submit an application, the staff member will schedule an application session with you.

STEP 3: Attend an Application Session

You will gather the required documents on the list provided to you at the Information Session and attend the application session.  At the session, you will complete an application and your personal documents will be reviewed to determine if you may qualify.  If the documents you bring are not complete, you may not be able to proceed to the next step.

STEP 4:  Habitat Staff Reviews Application

A staff member will review your application and supporting documentation and will pull a tri-merge credit report.  If you meet the qualifications, your application will be accepted for consideration.

STEP 5: Application Components Are Finalized

Any outstanding documentation will be collected by a staff member.  A sexual offender criminal background check will be conducted.  At the appropriate time, the application will be distributed to the Family Selection Committee.

STEP 6: Family Selection Committee Home Visit

Two members of the Family Selection Committee will contact you to set up a time to visit you and your family in your current home to verify residents of the house, examine financial responsibility, determine housing need, and evaluate the applicant’s understanding of Atlanta Habitat’s mission and purpose. 

STEP 7: Evaluation by Family Selection Committee

After the interview, the applicant will be presented at the next Family Selection Committee meeting.  After the presentation, the applicant(s) will be evaluated in five (5) general categories: employment, financial responsibility, need, community and family involvement, and passion/willingness to partner.

STEP 8: Final review

After the Committee meeting, the application for homeownership and the Family Selection Committee’s recommendation will be presented to the Habitat Board and Executive Director for final decision on approval.
