We believe that everyone should have a safe, affordable place to call home. To carry out our vision, we partner with prospective applicants to build and landscape a home and to secure an affordable mortgage loan to buy it. Every KAH home is an investment. For us, it is one answer to a critical need. We believe that safe and decent housing will create happier families and stronger communities. By working with us from beginning to end, we can help prospective applicants prepare for the responsibilities of homeownership, including understanding personal finances, family budgeting and maintaining your home.
Household incomes must be at least $25,000 and not more than 50% of Kent County median income as determined by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development. For a family of four 50% of median income would be $37,850.
Applicants must be willing to partner with Kent Attainable Housing by doing 50 hours of sweat equity which will include workshops on home ownership and finances as well as work on the applicant's home or other KAH houses.
Need is based on a number of considerations including safety, affordability and over-crowdedness of the current housing. Residents of low income housing who meet the other criteria are eligible because that would free up space for another family.
