Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod announces that applications are available now, for two affordable, three-bedroom ranch-style homes that will be built on Phoebe Way (off 26 Red Top Road) in Brewster. One of the homes will have a preference specified for a U.S. veteran household.
The application deadline is Aug. 14, 2023.
The maximum household income for the homes is 60 percent of the area median income for the first home and 80 percent for the second home. For example: for a four-person household—the current maximum income at 60 percent is $69,060; at 80 percent is $92,050. These income guidelines are adjusted annually.
The applicant household must have a housing need and be willing to commit many hours of sweat equity to build the home. The monthly housing payment (mortgage, taxes, insurance, homeowner association) for these homes is estimated to be around $1,141 for the first home and $1,552 for the second home, depending on the cost of taxes, insurance, interest rates, and other terms.
Applications are available at:
- Online at the Habitat website: habitatcapecod.org
- Habitat for Humanity Office: 411 Main Street (Route 6A), Suite 6, Yarmouth Port
- Brewster Ladies’ Library, 1822 Main St., Brewster
