Idaho Panhandle Habitat for Humanity is currently accepting applications for the 2018 Habitat home. The IPHFH builds homes in Bonner County for low- to moderate-income families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat partner families must save for a low down payment, help build the home with sweat equity hours, have a job/income, paid past bills and obligations in a timely and as agreed manner, and will purchase the home upon completion from Habitat with a zero interest mortgage, all conditions remaining satisfactory.
Other criteria includes: currently face housing problems, have lived or worked in Bonner County for at least one year; and meet Habitat income guidelines. Partner families will learn about budgeting, home repair and maintenance.
Applications are available at the Habitat ReStore at 1519 Baldy Park Road in Sandpoint. For information or questions, call Teri Smith 208-610-1003.
