Habitat for Humanity process detailed

BRUNSWICK — The process that leads to ownership of a new or rehabilitated Habitat for Humanity home in Brunswick, Harpswell, and Sagadahoc or Lincoln counties is the topic of a meeting 10 a.m. Saturday, April 13 at the Pilgrim House of First Parish Church, 9 Cleaveland St.

There will be a brief overview of Habitat’s homeowner program, Rural Development’s funding program, homeownership education opportunities, Habitat support committees and available housing.

Families who wish to apply for a Habitat home must live or work in the stated areas, earn 25 to 80 percent of the area’s median income and currently live in less desirable housing. Once qualified, each adult in the household must also be willing to contribute 200 hours of “sweat equity,” building homes, volunteering on other Habitat projects, working in the Habitat ReStore or helping in the administrative offices in Bath.

For more information, call 386-5081; email Michele @habitat7rivers.org or visit www.habitat7rivers.org.
