Wanted: First Time Home Owners Willing to 'Sweat'

41 Units to be Built at Atlantic Avenue, Eastern Parkway

Habitat for Humanity-New York City is looking for Brooklyn families who would like to own their own condos at a new “green” complex that will be rising soon in Ocean Hill-Brownsville, reports the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

Applications are now open for affordable one-, two- and three-bedroom "green" condominiums to those who are eligible: New York families earning between $35,450 to $56,700 for a family of four — as well as meeting other criteria. The estimated move-in date is late 2008.

According to the Eagle, the future homeowners must be willing to work with volunteers to help build the homes, and to commit to a minimum of 300 hours of “sweat equity” per adult to a maximum of 600 hours per family. There are other qualifications, as well. See the story here for more.
