Getting Started

Greater Cleveland Habitat is pausing the acceptance of new applications for homes within Cuyahoga County. Residents of Cuyahoga and Lorain Counties may still apply for a home within Lorain County. Please check this website on the 15th of every month for updates or changes. If you have any questions, contact We hope to be able to serve you soon!

We are thrilled that you are interested in partnering with Cleveland Habitat to purchase a home!

Please note that applicants that have lived or worked in Cuyahoga or Lorain County for the last 12 months are now eligible for homes in each county.

Our energy-efficient houses are geared to the size of homebuyer candidate’s households. For example, a 3-bedroom house is available for households of three or more.

If you would like to proceed, please fill out the pre-application by clicking the "apply now" button below. If you would prefer a physical copy mailed to you, please reach out to our team by emailing or calling us at 216-429-1299.

If you have no interest in Habitat's current available homes, we encourage you to apply at a different time. Habitat does not guarantee locations of future home sites. 

The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (provided the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract); because all or part of the applicant's income derives from any public assistance program; or because the applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. The Federal agency that administers compliance with this law concerning this creditor is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1700 G St. NW Washington, DC 20552
