How to Apply
The first step is to thoroughly review the eligibility requirements (En Español) for our home ownership program. In order to qualify, applicants should demonstrate a need for improved housing, ability to pay, U.S. citizenship or permanent residency, and a willingness to partner with us in performing “sweat equity” and participating in an education program.
If you determine that our program may be a good match, the next step is to attend one of our orientation sessions, where we will explain the steps of our program and provide you with an eligibility assessment, which includes an authorization for DC Habitat to review your credit history. Orientation dates are posted on our calendar as soon as they are scheduled. If none are currently scheduled, please visit our website routinely to see when new dates are posted. Our newest housing development is located in the Ivy City neighborhood of Northeast Washington, D.C. We are building two- and three-bedroom / one-bathroom homes.
