Program Overview & Requirements
Habitat Greater Portland partners with families to build a home that you can afford. That includes an affordable mortgage and an energy-efficient home to keep your monthly utilities low.
The process of completing your volunteer “sweat equity” hours and the building of your home typically takes upwards of 12-18 months. In that time, Habitat will prepare you for homeownership financially as well as empower you to maintain your new home yourself.
Upon completion of your home and your sweat equity hours, we will work with you on closing, resulting in an affordable mortgage on a new home and that you own!
