  • 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 and other families' homes and attend all educational workshops. All families must complete a total of 250 hours per adult.
