Household Income Guidelines

(combined income of everyone in the home)


We will not be accepting applications for homeownership until April 1, 2021.


Due to Covid-19 we have seen an 85% decrease in volunteer labor and an increase in lumber costs causing our existing homeowner waitlist to grow. We hope to resume normal operations as soon as possible.
