Fauquier Habitat for Humanity is opening the 2022 Homeownership Program application process with Applicant Information Sessions held virtually on March 5 at 10 am and 9th at 6:30 pm. When individuals and families attend one of these sessions, they will learn more about Habitat homeownership and will be eligible to apply for the 2022-23 program; an opportunity only offered once a year. The information session will discuss the requirements and details of the program, where we will build in 2023, new home designs, and more. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the session. 

Fauquier Habitat’s new homes are built to last for generations. The build process increases each house’s longevity and energy-efficiency, using cement composite materials like Hardi Plank siding, standing seam roofing, and advanced framing. These homes are also visually captivating, each designed to blend in with historical aspects of the neighborhoods in which they are built. 

Fauquier Habitat’s homeownership program is a long-term partnership between Fauquier Habitat for Humanity and its partnering families. The application process takes an average of three to four months, and the typical timeframe between approval for homeownership and purchase of a home is between 18 to 24 months. In those months, families will complete 250 “sweat equity” hours volunteering with Habitat and participating in finance, home maintenance, and community building classes. This program is developed to prepare families better to own a new, affordable home, offering them a hand-up, not a hand-out.
