Thank you for your interest in partnering with Habitat. Applications are now closed. 2020 application period will open in August 2020.

As a homeowner you have an increased responsibility of home and community upkeep. Living in a stable and safe home is influential to a positive future of children and families. Homeownership is important to children and youth because it improves health and academic performance. 

Habitat homeowners are chosen based on their need for housing, income level, and willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln. Qualifying families income is below 50% of the median income for Lancaster County. Habitat homeowners pay an affordable mortgage. Mortgage payments are recycled into the building fund, which is used for the construction of more homes. 

Many faith, business and community partners contribute funding, construction labor, lunch and much more to each home that is built in our community.
