Habitat for Humanity to accept applications for homeownership in Weavers Grove

CHAPEL HILL, NC (February 8, 2024) – Beginning tomorrow, Habitat for Humanity of Orange County will open its next cycle for the homeownership program of townhomes and duplexes in Weavers Grove, a first-of-its-kind mixed-income community in Chapel Hill. Habitat’s Homeowner Services team will be accepting applications for the Spring 2024 cycle of the homeownership program from February 9 through February 22, 2024, at 5pm.

Habitat acquired the first parcel of land in February 2002 and slowly acquired five more parcels over the next 18 years. In June 2020, the Town of Chapel Hill Town Council approved Weavers Grove, and a formal groundbreaking took place in October 2021. Construction began in the Summer of 2023, with 12 currently being built.

The minimum requirements are that applicants have lived or worked in Orange County for at least 12 months, are first-time homebuyers, and are able to afford one of our home loans. For Weavers Grove for the Spring 2024 application cycle, the minimum income is $47,000 and not exceeding 80% Area Median Income (AMI). These requirements are subject to change per cycle and development.
