Taking applications for Carthage Development coming in 2014

Nov 23

Picture 068
We are now taking applications for a multiple year build project with the village of Carthage.

Three criteria to be considered for a partner family for the Thousand Islands Area Habitat for Humanity:

·NEED Are you living in inadequate or substandard conditions?

·ABILITY TO PAY Is your present income too low to enable you to get conventional financing from a bank, but is sufficient to make a monthly payment (including mortgage, insurance, and taxes) that is required for the no-interest Habitat mortgage?

·WILLINGNESS TO PARTICIPATE AS A PARTNER WITH HABITAT Are you willing to fulfill the requirements of Habitat ownership by putting in the mandatory “sweat equity” hours in building your house and other Habitat houses?

If you have answered YES to all three of these items, we want YOU to apply as a possible partner family.

Go to “App’s & Policies” on our website, and then click on “Apply for a home” to print the application.

    I think families that have trouble getting conventional loans and live in housing apartments should qualify. You know I was turned down in Utica years ago and the homes were given to foreign families. I work hard, desire to help in building, but truth is my daughter and I need our own. Living in these apartments with neighbors who have no regard for you peace (loud music all night. Smh) is getting old.
    Please mail me an application to PO Box 142, Syracuse NY 13214
    I believe in this program!
