Home Ownership Program Overview
Habitat for Humanity of Summit & Wasatch Counties builds healthy, energy efficient, affordable homes for working members of our community.
Habitat homeowners are active participants in building a better home and future for themselves and their families. Every Habitat home is an investment. For us, it is one answer to a critical need, and we believe that stronger homes will create stronger communities.
As not just the builder, but the mortgage lender as well, we form a true partnership with our homeowners and work toward providing long term stability so that families can work and live in our community.

Applications are reviewed by our Homeowner Services Committee. The committee is made up of volunteer community members who support our affordable housing mission.
After submitting their documents, applicants participate in a home visit interview with committee members for program eligibility.
Eligible applicants are then evaluated for selection, based on available inventory.
Selected applicants are offered the opportunity to partner with Habitat to build a home.
