[ARCHIVED] San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity Homeownership Application Period Opens April 1

MPK News Release - SGV Habitat for Humanity Homeownership Program

The high cost of housing in the San Gabriel Valley means that homeownership is out of reach for many families. San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity sells affordable homes to low-income, first-time homeowners to help them achieve the American dream of homeownership.   

Approved homeowners qualify for a monthly housing payment, including mortgage, property tax, insurance, and HOA fee if applicable, equal to 30% of their gross monthly income.  

With the support of community partners, donors, and volunteers, the San Gabriel Valley Habitat constructs new homes and renovates existing homes alongside Habitat Partner Homebuyers. They work to create affordable homeownership opportunities so everyone can achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.  

Am I eligible?  

  1. You must demonstrate a need for housing. This means that your current living conditions are substandard, crowded, or overly expensive.
  2. You must demonstrate the ability to pay for your new home by having good credit (no recent bankruptcies, collections, liens, or judgments) and meeting annual income requirements.
  3. You must be willing to partner with SGV Habitat for Humanity by completing homebuyer education and investing sweat equity hours building your future Habitat home and the homes of other Habitat Homebuyers.
  4. You must meet the definition of a first-time homebuyer.  

Pre-applications can be completed online beginning April 1 through April 30, 2021. For more information about the SGV Habitat for Humanity Homeownership Program, registration links, and dates for free information sessions, please visit   

Habitat for Humanity is an equal opportunity housing provider and lender. If you have questions or concerns, contact the Homeownership Team at 818-937-2010 or
