Habitat For Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns/Buffalo is currently taking applications from families for their next Habitat House which will begin construction soon.
Applications will be accepted until October 5th, according to Nancy Orwig, volunteer with Habitat For Humanity in Buffalo.
She said sometimes the application period can be extended, but those interested should pick up applications at the Habitat Buffalo Office on S. Williams Thursdays and Fridays from 10 to 2 and Saturdays from 10 to noon, or at the Johnson County Library.
According to their website www.sheridanhabitat.org, families in need of decent shelter can apply and the family selection committee chooses homeowners based on their level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program and their ability to repay the loan.
Habitat homes in Sheridan and Johnson County average around $100,000 to $115,000 each. Habitat houses are affordable for low-income families because there is no profit included in the sale price. Mortgage lengths vary from seven to 30 years.
Orwig said those with questions, or a need to discuss eligibility or help in filling out the application, can contact Buffalo's Habitat For Humanity Office at 684-5220.
