New Construction Program
The Lumbee Tribe offers New Construction to low-income families who potentially would not be eligible for conventional loans through a lending institution. The homeownership program is for qualified first time homeowners. The Lumbee Tribe will construct the home and act as the lender. Homes may be built on the owner’s land, or in a tribal subdivision. The New Construction program operates on a first-come, first-serve basis; therefore, there is a waiting list.
To Apply, the applicant …
Must have an annual family income which is sufficient to pay administration fees, utilities and upkeep costs;
Must have the potential for maintaining at least their current income level based on the national median income guidelines;
Must be a first-time homeowner;
Must be an enrolled Lumbee;
Must be below 40% to 80% of the national median income; and
Must have an approved criminal background.
The applicant may not have received prior housing assistance from the Lumbee Tribe or any other governmental housing agency for construction of a new house, and must be willing and able to meet all obligations of the Homeownership Program.
