Habitat Announces New Build: Dieppe 2020

Moncton, NB – Habitat for Humanity Moncton is building on Jacques Street in Dieppe this year and seeking qualified applicants who want to become homeowners through a partnership with Habitat. This will be their 23 rd house built and their 33 rd family served in Southeastern NB.

This lot was donated by the City of Dieppe to Habitat Moncton in 2015 following a Habitat build in the lot next to it, which was also donated by the city. “To have the municipality engaged and committed to being part of the solution of providing safe and affordable housing to their citizen is critical in the success of our mission that everyone deserves a place to call home. Affordable homeownership is part of the housing continuum.”, says Chantal Landry, Executive Director.

The application process is open to all who qualify for the program. The basic criteria required includes a household income that fits into one of the low-income brackets per family size, a need for safe and affordable housing and a willingness to partner with Habitat Moncton. The complete application process may take 6-8 weeks as we have an extensive selection process to select the successful applicant. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers as they complete the 500 volunteer hours required as part of their partnership. They pay full market value for their home and their monthly payment, which includes their principal, property taxes and home insurance, is no more than 30% of their gross household income. The organization enables their homeowners to achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful place to buy inexpensive materials for home projects. We have bought several things for our home from here. It’s perfect for folks on a budget. They have so many things from doors to canned lighting to vanities and fixtures!

This organization actually helped a relative with her first home, 10+ years later she still loves her home and is there. I have also donated furniture and clothes to them and I see them all the time helping and engaging with the local community!

I really respect this program and think it’s a great opportunity for people who could use a hand up. I like that they use sweet equity so the families can be vested in their own future and take pride in what they’re doing. And all the wonderful skilled people volunteering their time really deserve kudos!
