Habitat homes are sold, not given, to approved homeowner applicants who pay zero-interest mortgage payments toward the full ownership of their homes. Owning a Habitat home improves the quality of life for its residents, not only in the physical surroundings but also by instilling a sense of pride and responsibility that comes with homeownership. Applications are reviewed using the selection criteria in a way that does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, ability, religion, national origin, family or marital status, or because all or part of income is derived from any public assistance program.
