Habitat for Humanity of Long Island is accepting applications through November 30 for homeownership opportunities in Riverside, Riverhead, Bellport and Wyandanch.

Households must fall within a designated annual income range to qualify. A single person can have an income between $53,900 and $71,400, and a family of two can earn between $61,600 and $81,600. For a family of four, the range is $76,950 to $102,000.

In addition to meeting income eligibility requirements, applicants must explain their current living situation and need for housing,

Recipients do not receive a free house but a subsidized home with an affordable mortgage.

“Habitat’s path to homeownership is an important and in-depth process, requiring hard work, time and dedication — to ensure the long-term success of Habitat homeowners,” the nonprofit noted in its announcement.

The process requires that recipients contribute 300 “sweat equity” hours on the preparation and construction of their future home or on other Habitat for Humanity projects. This can include clearing the lot, painting and helping with building as well as working in the Habitat office or ReStore, attending homeownership classes and performing community service.

Learn more at habitatliny.org/applications-open. Applications are available in English and Spanish and can be submitted online, in-person or via mail. Call 631-422-4828, extension 114, or email apply@habitatliny.org with questions.
