Commonly Asked Questions!
What is the Partnership Program?
Partnerships are key to the Habitat for Humanity homownership model. Habitat for Humanity forms partnerships with all levels of government, local agencies/organizations and community members to get houses build or renovated. Once a project is complete, Habitat finances the purchase of the house in a partnership agreement with eligible purchasers. Homeowners benefit from an interest-free mortgage and affordable payment. When the house is sold, they will share in the market growth with Habitat. As homeowners pay down their mortgage, their share of the market growth with increase.
