CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County extended the deadline to apply for home ownership to Oct. 31, 2017

Habitat for Humanity is currently building four homes (two twin homes) east of downtown Cheyenne. Two homes already have been awarded to local families.

“We now seek two more successful applicants,” said Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Kate Wright. “We’re excited to extend the deadline and give more families the opportunity to improve their lives and contribute to the community by becoming local home owners.”

Habitat for Humanity has had a presence in Laramie County since 1991 and in that time the non-profit has built 41 homes. This is the first project involving twin homes, Wright added.

Successful applicants need to meet certain income criteria, commit to contributing to the construction of their home and make monthly mortgage payments after they take possession of the home.
