Habitat for Humanity to build home in Currituck

Local citizens have an opportunity to apply for ownership of a new home to be built in Currituck County by Habitat for Humanity. Supported by a grant from the State Employees Credit Union, North Carolina Habitat for Humanity plans to build one house in each of the state's 100 counties.

The application period for Currituck County will be from June 6 to June 20, 2016.

The Currituck County Department of Social Services will help coordinate the recruitment and selection of a homeowner. Final decisions will be made by the N.C. Habitat for Humanity. Following the selection of a homeowner, a group of volunteers will work on the home project, which can be a rehab or a new build. A geographically-appropriate construction site will be determined based on the selection of the homeowner.

Applications will be available at the following locations in Currituck County:

  • Department of Social Services, 232-3083
  • Senior Centers, 232-3505
  • Cooperative Extension, 232-2261
  • Corolla Satellite Office,  453-8555
  • Welcome Center in Moyock, 435-2947

Habitat for Humanity will offer the homeowner 0% financing on the mortgage loan for the house. Qualifying applicants must live or work in the county where the house will be located. The successful applicant must also complete a certain number of required hours of volunteer construction work during the building of the home and attend homeowner education classes.

Find complete information on qualifying requirements in this Habitat for Humanity project brochure, which also includes contact information for Social Services.

If you have questions regarding the application or need more information, contact Kathy Romm, Currituck County Department of Social Services, at 232-6041 or kathy.romm@currituckcountync.gov
