Habitat plans application class

Published 12:25pm Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Habitat for Humanity of Morgan County will host application information classes on Tues., Oct. 16, at 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. at the new Habitat ReStore at 1123 Central Parkway, SE in Decatur. These sessions are for people who are interested in applying for the Habitat Program.

Habitat builds homes for low-income families and then sells them to the families for the cost of construction. There is no interest on any loan and Habitat makes no profit from the sales. House costs generally range from $55,000 to $65,000. Sponsors provide cash and volunteer laborers to lower building costs.

In order to qualify for the program, applicants must live in Morgan County, have a housing need, have a source of stable income and meet income requirements and be willing to volunteer on construction sites and at the Habitat ReStore, as well as participate in homeowner education classes.

Anyone interested in applying should call the Habitat office at 256-340-9609 to pre-qualify. You may also visit our website at for more information.
