Pre-screening packets are available to people interested in finding out more information about becoming a Habitat homeowner. Call VVHFH at 649-6788, visit the offices at 737 S. Main Street, Cottonwood, Arizona, or request a pre-screening packet online. (use the link provided on this website.) Additionally, VVHFH holds prospective homeowner public education forums. During these presentations, criteria for homeownership is presented and pre-screening packets are available.
If you meet the minimum criteria at the pre-screening level, you will be given an Application for Housing. This is a 7-page document that must be completed and returned within 20 days. If your application is complete and all information has been confirmed to be correct, representatives of the Family Selection Committee will ask to meet with you to review required documents, which include but are not limited to:
- Social Security cards
- U.S. birth certificates or proof of permanent residency
- Arizona driver’s license or state-issued identification card
- most recent 2 years’ signed IRS income tax returns with W2s, 1099s, etc.
- most recent 2 months’ bank statements
- last 4 pay stubs (if employed)
Note: criminal background checks and credit checks are conducted on all applicants, co-applicants and other adults that will be residing within the home. In-home visits are also conducted.
After all qualifying applications have been reviewed and home visits are made, the committee will nominate families for final review by the VVHFH Board of Directors.
