Apply for a Home at Habitat for Humanity of Brazoria County

You will be considered for a Habitat home based on your need for adequate shelter, ability to pay, and willingness to partner with Habitat. You must currently live in our service area (Southern Brazoria County).  You cannot have owned a home in the last three years from date of application.

  • Need for Adequate Shelter includes such considerations as substandard structure, and undesirable conditions.  Economic considerations will include inability to obtain conventional/subsidized financing or rent payments that take too much of the family income.
  • Ability to Pay considers your sources of income, credit history, and funds available for home mortgage.  You will be required to openly and fully discuss your financial situation with Habitat personnel.  You and your family will be considered if your annual gross income is between 30% to 60% of the Brazoria County FY 2018 Income Limits published by HUD (see table below).
  • Willingness to Partner means that you provide information needed to complete the application and approval process, attend required classes to develop successful homeownership skills, fulfill sweat equity requirements (250-400 hours of service, depending on family size) and attend Habitat functions as required.
