Habitat for Humanity of Horry County has announced the opening of applications for the Habitat Homebuyer program. Applications may be submitted beginning September 1, 2023. The deadline to submit completed applications is September 29, 2023 at 12:00pm.
To qualify for the Habitat Homebuyer Program, applicants must have lived in Horry County for at least one year, fall within noted income limits, show a need for safe and affordable housing, and be willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Horry County.
The Homebuyer Program is a 18- to 24-month program where families attend monthly financial classes, perform sweat equity hours, pay closing costs, pay down their current debt and agree to not take on any additional debt. Upon completion of the program, families can purchase their Habitat home with an interest-free mortgage.
Pertinent documents and additional information regarding the application process can be found here.
Additional questions may be referred to the Family Services Director, Michelle Morgan, at (843) 650-8815 ext. 8003.
Habitat looks forward to welcoming new families into the program this Fall. Since 1990, Habitat for Humanity of Horry County has partnered with more than 170 families to help them achieve their goal of homeownership.
