Habitat accepting homeowner applications

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties is now accepting homeowner applications. A community meeting will be held on Tuesday at the Brush Creek Pavilion in Eagle to provide important information about the application process and about Habitat home ownership. The meeting will be held in English at 5:30 p.m. and in Spanish at 6:15 p.m. Applications will be distributed following this meeting and there will be time for questions.

Beyond building homes, Habitat gives families the tools they need to thrive and empowers families to build a better future for themselves and their children.

“We notice that Habitat families are very motivated people and work hard to improve the lives of their children,” said Emily Peyton, family services director. “We encourage families of all shapes and sizes to consider applying or to gather information for some friends. If you know a family that could use a ‘hand up’ we will be happy to provide information or send them an application.”

Habitat for Humanity selects families based on three criteria: degree of need, ability to pay and willingness to partner, and all family members must be U.S. citizens or permanent legal residents. Family members work hard to help build their homes before purchasing them from Habitat.

Specific information about income range and other details are available at http://www.HabitatVailValley.org.

The application deadline is June 1 by 5 p.m. Those interested in receiving an application before the community meeting can do so by stopping by the Habitat office in Eagle-Vail, by calling to have one mailed or by downloading it off http://www.HabitatVailValley.org.
