Homeowner Selection Criteria

We will look at the following when reviewing potential partner families:

  1. Your family’s actual housing need based on the suitability of your current shelter.
  2. Your current income and ability to pay a no-interest mortgage. You and your family will be considered if your total income before taxes is between 40% and 55% of the median family income in Mercer County. 
  3. Your willingness to partner with us by volunteering 350 hours toward the construction of your home and other activities (up to 100 of those hours can be from extended family and friends).
  4. Be a current New Jersey resident.
