Potential applicants should be aware of the criteria for the Habitat program, which has three main elements:

3) The applicant(s) must be willing to partner with Habitat and contribute to the building of their home. They are required to log a minimum of 250 sweat equity hours on their new home and should help in recruitment of family, friends, and members of the community to volunteer.
