We believe that everyone should have a safe, quality, affordable place to call home – and that affordable housing plays a critical role in strong, stable families and communities. An affordable home also provides the opportunity to generate wealth for homeowners and their families.

Habitat’s path to homeownership is an in-depth process, requiring time, dedication and hard work. The process is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary to be a successful homeowner.

Our homeownership program is not an emergency housing solution. If you are in need of emergency housing assistance, please call 2-1-1 or go to the 2-1-1 website https://211md.org/ for more housing resources.

In order to be considered for Habitat Choptank’s program, you must first complete the Homebuyer Inquiry Form below. After that, you will be sent a packet of information and our Homebuyer Eligibility Form. You should follow the instructions in the packet and return all required documentation within 30 days. At that point, we will review your submitted information.

Please note that Habitat Choptank currently only has buildable lots available in Dorchester County (while we are completing homes in Talbot County, there are already homebuyers in the queue).
