Home Building Program

Habitat For Humanity Home Building Program Details

Families are welcome to apply during a set period each year, and are selected based on the following:

  1. Need: Is your current living space unsafe, unaffordable or too small? A family is considered in need if they pay more than 30% of their income towards rent, the current home is too small for their family size, and if their current home is unsafe/in poor condition.
  2. Ability to Pay: Habitat sells newly-constructed homes to family partners at cost, with no interest. Habitat seeks family partners earning about 30-80% of the area median income (this amount fluctuates from year to year).
  3. Willingness to Partner: Habitat for Humanity requires each partner to commit to 350 hours of “Sweat Equity” (volunteer work time). Sweat Equity hours help your family get involved in the homebuilding process for not only your family, but the process for all our partner families. This aspect of our program is bread and butter for building community and hope in our area.
  4. Residency: Must reside in the Great Falls Area for a period of one year at the time of application.

*These are a summary of our program. For a full list of the specific requirements, attend our next Partner Family Workshop by signing up for our Newsletter and watching out for the next registration window.

Our commitment to build with people in need extends to those with disabilities. When possible, Habitat houses incorporate basic accessible design features, such as a zero-step entrance and wide passage doors and hallways. Houses built in partnership with families with disabilities include additional accessibility features.
