Review our Qualifications & Complete our Eligibility Questionnaire

Habitat for Humanity offers low-income families the opportunity to own a home. Becoming a Habitat homeowner requires commitment, responsibility, and deep involvement.

To partner with us, you must meet the following preliminary criteria:

  • You must be a Legal Permanent Resident of the United States.
  • You must have lived, worked, or attended school in Fauquier or Rappahannock for at least 12 months. Affiliates for other vicinities can be found at habitat.org.

  • You must have one year of continuous income.
  • You must have a reasonably good credit history. It must be at least three years since you discharged any bankruptcies, and you must be making payments on your debts.
  • You must have a need for housing because your current housing is unaffordable, unsafe, or overcrowded.
  • You must partner with Fauquier Habitat for Humanity and contribute "sweat equity," helping to build your home as well as other families' homes, and attend all educational workshops. All families must complete a total of 250 hours per adult.
  • Attendance to the virtual applicant information session is MANDATORY. Applications will not be accepted otherwise.
