Please answer this application thoroughly and truthfully. We will use this application to help determine if you qualify for the Habitat for Humanity ABWK program. All information will be kept confidential. If there is only one applicant, please leave Co-Applicant blank or answer N/A. Co-Applicant is whomever owns the home with the applicant.
If you are needing only labor, you will be asked to skip a few sections of the application. However, if you are needing labor AND materials, you will be asked to fill out the entire application.
Please describe all the work you would like done on your home. Remember that the items you list will be considered for repair, but the final decision on what work can be done will be made by the staff of Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties. Our volunteers are not professionals and may not be able to make all repairs.
Let it be known that HFHWD will purchase the materials needed for the ABWK project. However, it is up to the homeowner to repay back HFHWD for the materials either through affordable monthly payments and/or a no-interest loan that HFHWD provides.
Please list all members of the household. This includes everyone that lives in the home.
Please add the relationship everyone has to the applicant (i.e., daughter, son, mother, father, etc.).
You must be present at the time of the volunteers doing the ABWK project.
To be considered for a Habitat ABWK project, you and/or your family must be willing to complete “sweat equity” hours, approved by Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties. Your help in repairing or renovating your home and/or homes of others is called “sweat equity” hours. This may include clearing the lot, helping alongside volunteers, providing water or food for volunteers, writing thank you notes, etc. The “sweat equity” hours are dependent on the amount of work being done on your home and other factors. The ABWK Coordinator will work with you in deciding how many hours are required and which activities are approved.
If you are requiring labor AND materials, you should be aware that HFHWD will purchase the materials. However, these materials will need to be paid for with a no-interest loan or affordable payments based on your income and ability to repay. If you income won’t allow this repayment, you will be denied.

I confirm that any physically able persons residing in my home or visiting for the project day and are 18 years or older will work alongside the Habitat volunteers in order to fulfill the approved “sweat equity” hours.
If any information is found to be misleading or fraudulent on any forms; or individual/family fails to complete the requirements outlined in the letter of acceptance regarding to “sweat equity” hours; and/or there has been a change in economic circumstances which affects ability to pay as outlined in the promissory note, an individual/family may be deselected from the program if there is no foreseeable remedy and is in accordance with established de-selection guidelines.
I agree to provide any and all documents requested of HFHWD to verify information required in this application.

I hereby release HFHWD and all associated with it from any and all liability whatsoever.
