Equal Housing Opportunity Statement
We are pledged to the letter and spirit of the U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin

The qualified applicant will be presented to the Board of Directors who will make a final decision on a family’s acceptance into the program.
Once accepted into the Homeownership program, the process from acceptance through moving into a home can take 8(eight) months to 2(two) years, depending on available funding, construction schedules, and the future homeowner's progress of completing requirements.
Inevitably, there will be more qualified families than homes available so not all qualified families will be approved.
