How to apply for the Carleton Place home


Applying for a CARLETON PLACE Habitat NCR Home is Easy!

To be eligible to apply for a Habitat NCR home in Carleton Place, you must be a current resident of Carleton Place, Ontario or surrounding area (Carleton Place, Beckwith Township and Mississippi Mills (former Ramsay Township)).
Simply follow these four steps:
1.  COMPLETE AN APPLICATION FORM
a)  Download the PDF Application Form:
i.  Click on this link for the 2011 Carleton Place Application Form.
ii.  The form is not an online form, you must print it on paper to complete it.
ii.  When the file opens either print directly from the screen (click on "printer" icon), or
iii.  Save the form to your hard drive to save a copy and print later.  Click on the "disc" icon to save copy to your hard drive.
b)   OR, pick up an Application Form at an Information Session.
NOTE: Due to the short notice and early deadline date, we strongly encourage you to download the application form as early as possible.  Completing the form is a lot of work, and we require copies of many documents that will take time to gather together.  Waiting until the date of the Information Session will likely be too late.
2.  ATTEND THE CARLETON PLACE INFORMATION SESSION
You need to attend an information session before submitting your application:
MONDAY, AUGUST 15th @ 7:30PM at Zion-Memorial United Church, 37 Franklin Street, Carleton Place, ON K7C 1R6.  We are meeting in the church "community" hall.
    3.  MEET AND MAINTAIN THE ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA DURING THE SELECTION PROCESS.
    If your financial situation changes putting you either above or below our income thresholds, you will no longer be eligible.  If your housing situation changes, you may no longer be eligible.
    4.  SUBMIT THE COMPLETED APPLICATION.  FINAL DEADLINE BEFORE 3:00 PM, Monday, August 29.
    a)  Bring the completed Application Form with you to the Information Session, or one of the following:
    i)  Drop it off at Zion-Memorial United Church, 37 Franklin Street, Carleton Place, ON K7C 1R6.  After church office hours, please use the mail slot.  Church staff cannot answer questions nor help you with your application.  This is a drop-off location for your convenience only.  For help call 613-749-9950 x225.
