APPLICATION PROCESS

1) LOAN PRE-QUALIFICATION


Families must be pre-qualified for a mortgage loan to pay for the cost of a new home. Please contact the office below - via phone or email - for an application.



2) SUBMIT REQUIRED DOCUMENTS 

The family must present a package of loan documents to verify income

and employment.



3) SITE VISIT 

A representative from Community Rebuilds will visit the family's site and document findings. Building sites are approved on a case by case basis. All sites will be considered, however, our program gives preference to replacing existing homes that are in a state of disrepair. To receive preference through our dilapidated housing replacement program, the condition of your home must meet one of the following criteria:

 

                        -Manufactured homes built prior to June 15, 1976  

                        -Dilapidated post-1976 manufactured homes 

                        -Dilapidated standard framed homes



4) INTERVIEW WITH COMMUNITY REBUILDS

Families must first decide if the Community Rebuilds program is right for them.  The family must consider if the new home will satisfy their needs, agree to the design of the home, and agree that the construction process and timeline are acceptable.
