Lafayette Habitat for Humanity is releasing applications for its Affordable Homeownership Program on July 1, 2020. This is a special application for three homes located on Remington Road in Kaplan, LA.

Applications will be available on Lafayette Habitat's website,, and their program office, 823 W. Congress Street. Applications will be taken on a first come first serve basis and will close once families are qualified for all three houses.

Eligible applicants must have current housing need, be able to make an affordable monthly mortgage payment, and be willing to partner with Habitat to complete financial education and homeownership classes.

Lafayette Habitat's Affordable Homeownership Program is not a giveaway - qualified homebuyers pay for closing costs and make monthly mortgage payments. Habitat homes are sold to participants of its Affordable Homeownership Program for no profit. The sale is financed with an affordable 20-30-year mortgage loan. These mortgage payments are then recycled to build more homes.

For more information, call 337-261-5041.
