Habitat for Humanity Grey Bruce builds simple, energy efficient, affordable homes in partnership with families who currently live in substandard housing. Since our beginning, we have been improving the lives of more than 35 families throughout Grey and Bruce counties.
Families purchase Habitat homes through a no down payment, no-interest mortgage with payments, including property tax, set at 25 percent of gross household income.
This solution not only helps to provide housing for families in need, it enables them to build assets, reduce their dependence on other forms of social assistance and break free from the multigenerational cycle of poverty.
Habitat Home ownership ensures low income families own their own home – empowering families who may have relied on municipal rental subsidies, to contribute to local municipal annual operating budgets through the payment of property taxes.
