Families Partnering with Habitat
We will look at three distinct areas of selection criteria when reviewing potential partners.
- Your family's actual housing need based on the suitability of your current housing.
- Your current income and ability to pay for a Habitat home.
- Your willingness to particpate as a "partner" with Habitat.

Looking for an affordable opportunity to buy a simple, decent home? Please review the basic guidelines for eligibility, qualifications, and expectations for becoming a Habitat Homeowner.
A series of public informational meetings are held periodically by our Family Selection Committee when we are ready to select families for our next homes. At the orientation meeting qualifications for the program are reviewed and application packets are distributed. The applicants are given ample time to provide the required information and do not need to provide anything in advance of the meeting.
Please read the information regarding our Family Selection Criteria. If you feel that you meet these criteria and would like to attend a public informational meeting as described above, please contact the NCHFH offices for a Family Selection Form. When we receive your completed form, we will keep it on file in order to notify you by mail of the time and location of the next orientation meeting.
The selection of families who will purchase homes from Nevada County Habitat for Humanity will be done by the Family Selection Committee using these criteria in a way that does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, handicap, religion, marital status, or because all or part of the applicant's income is derived from public assistance.
Please fill out the information below and mail this form to: Nevada County Habitat for Humanity P.O. Box 2997, Grass Valley, CA 95945.
Please notify me when the next Orientation meeting is scheduled so that I can get more information and an application for homeownership:
