Coming soon: Applications for Homeownership

Beaches Habitat for Humanity will begin accepting applications for new homeownership opportunities.

Beginning Friday, July 26, 2024, Beaches Habitat for Humanity will accept pre-questionnaires from those interested in applying to own a home in Coastal Haven, our new Mayport Road townhome community. The new neighborhood will eventually hold forty-four (44) townhomes, and we expect to build eight (8) townhomes each year for the next several years.

To be considered as an applicant for these new homes, interested individuals must complete a pre-questionnaire to determine their eligibility. To learn more about eligibility requirements, please visit beacheshabitat.org/own-a-home. If eligible, candidates will be entered into a randomized drawing to determine the order in which they will receive an application.

To be eligible, candidates must:

  • live or work within our service area, east of St. Johns Bluff Road, for at least one year;
  • be a US citizen or legal permanent resident;
  • be a first time homebuyer defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as not having owned a home in the past three (3) years;
  • currently live in substandard housing, which can include overcrowded, subsidized, or unaffordable housing;
  • provide proof of at least one year of steady income;
  • have a credit score of 640 or higher, with no charge-offs, no unsatisfied public records, and no bankruptcies within the last four (4) years;
  • be able to make a $1000 down payment;
  • meet the income requirements based on HUD’s 2024 Income Limits, effective April 1, 2024.

The pre-questionnaires will be emailed to those who have signed up for notifications through the Beaches Habitat website. They will also be available in the office beginning at 9 am on Friday, July 26th.
