Application Process

Have you read our Homeownership Qualifications? If you meet the criteria, please fill out a pre-application screening form.


Pre-Appli cation Scre ening Form


*The selection process to become a partner family with Habitat for Humanity of McLean County is usually open year-round, but we are not currently accepting applications due to a surplus of qualified applicants. After these applicants are reviewed, we will resume the selection process. If you wish to be put on a waiting list, please call the Habitat office at 309-827-3931 or email Toni at and we will be sure to add your name to the list. You will be contacted when the process is open again. Thank you for your patience!


Please submit this form from the button above. If you are unable to submit the form online, you may call our office at 309-827-3931 to request one be mailed to you. Once your pre-application is received, Habitat McLean County staff will determine whether you meet basic criteria and will contact you in a timely manner to discuss. 


  • If you meet the criteria, you will be invited to schedule an application meeting to learn more about the program and next steps for your application. 

  • If you do not meet the basic criteria, our staff will explain why and share resources that can help you become qualified or assist with your current needs. Many of our homeowners were not accepted with their first application, but after using the suggested partner resources, were able to apply again and partner with us. If you do not qualify to partner, we simply see this as a delay, not a denial.
