Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County and Greater Trenton-Princeton works in partnership with people from all walks of life to build homes, communities and hope. We sell homes to low-income families and offer 0% interest loans with no down payment required. Habitat homeowners make monthly mortgage payments that don’t exceed 30% of their gross monthly income.
Habitat homeowners work hard to create a permanent solution to their housing struggles. Each Habitat partner family must complete 250 to 400 hours of “sweat equity” to build their home and the homes of other Habitat families, work in our ReStores, and attend Homeowner Education classes, meetings, and special events. Sweat equity can be done during the week, in the evenings and on the weekends.
Qualified families must show that they have a Need for Housing, are Willing to Partner with Habitat for Humanity and are Able to Pay for a Habitat mortgage. See Qualifications for more information regarding eligibility.
