Habitat Taking Applications for Home Loans
Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications for new homeowner partners. Homeowners are selected based on three criteria: the applicant’s level of need; their willingness to partner with Habitat; and their ability to repay a mortgage through an affordable payment plan. Potential homeowners must meet income guidelines, be a US Citizen or Legal Resident, have credit of 640 or better and not be a registered sex offender. Homes must be built in Cherokee County.
In collaboration with the USDA, TAHFH helps potential homeowners apply for an affordable, low-interest mortgage through the USDA’s Rural Development program. Habitat’s homebuyers invest hundreds of hours of their own labor, called sweat equity, working alongside volunteers and other Habitat homeowners to help build their own homes. No profit is charged for building the house.
Applications can be picked up at the TAHFH Office at 816 S. College Ave. on the corner of College Ave. and First St. Assistance is available for those needing help with the application process. #1 Consignment Shop in Tahlequah
