Council learns of housing option through Habitat for Humanity
Last week the Winslow City Council held both a work session and a regular meeting, where a variety of important matters were discussed and presentations were made. In the work session, Eric Wolverton, the executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona, introduced an innovative program designed to empower low-income families through homeownership of houses constructed by Habitat for Humanity. This program allows families to move in, pay a manageable monthly fee, and, when the resident leaves, sell the home back to Habitat for Humanity, while retaining the money they’ve paid, totaling $10,000 per year of occupancy. Participants in the program will be allowed to stay as long as 10 years in the program and if they chose to stay that long, they would receive $100,000 to invest in permanent homes. But they do not have to stay that long to get paid, if they stay one year, they will get $10,000, five years will get them $50,000 and so on. These homes, at 500 square feet, are not meant for permanent housing. Eligibility is based on earning less than 80% of the area’s median income.
