Habitat seeks applicants for fourth project in Stevens

The local Habitat for Humanity chapter is seeking applicants for the group's fourth home.

The Stevens County chapter of the Prairie Lakes Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications through Sept. 30.

Since forming the chapter two years ago, Habitat for Humanity has completed a home in Alberta and two in Morris, both of which were built in cooperation with Thrivent Builds.

Applicants must pass a background check of their credit history, and must have an income sufficient to make payments on the Habitat home, but there is a ceiling on the level of income. The number of family members also factors into the income level.

People who are chosen for the project must agree to put in "sweat equity" hours on the home. The Habitat projects can be constructed in any Stevens County city, and officials encourage people living in sub-standard dwellings to apply by calling: Carol at (320) 589-3945; Bev at (320) 795-2465; Cheryl at (320) 585-6105; or Nora at (320) 589-7416.
