Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Enid Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with help from individuals, businesses, and organizations. The only government help received has been lots and grants donated from the City of Enid.
Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable, no-interest loans.
All donations are local, and those funds are put to work right here in Enid. Administrative fees are minimal; therefore more funds go to housing projects. The average cost of a Habitat house is $65,000.
Habitat is not a give-away program. As mentioned above, homeowners must make monthly mortgage payments on a no-interest loan. Prior to consideration for a Habitat home, the homeowner family must invest 300 hours of sweat equity on Habitat projects.
