YES, I have a need for housing. I currently do not qualify for financing from a bank or credit union. My current living situation is overcrowded or my house or apartment has major problems that my landlord will not repair.
YES, I have the ability to pay. I can afford to pay up to $450 / month on a no-interest mortgage. I have not had a bankruptcy in two years. My household income is between $17,000 for a single-person household and up to $47,000 for a family of 6 or more.
