Homeownership Opportunities for WildfireSurvivors


Lincoln County, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County, Community

Services Consortium, and other nonprofit organizations, is making limited homeownership

opportunities available to individuals and families impacted by the 2020 Echo Mountain

Complex Wildfire. There will be a minimum of five homes in the North Lincoln County area

available over the next 12 months, with two homes ready for occupancy in June. The homes

will vary in size, location, and cost.


Anyone who can be verified to have lost their home due to the Echo Mountain Complex

Wildfire and has not yet been able to rebuild is eligible to participate. This includes those

who owned the primary home on a piece of property, those who lived in a secondary home

on property owned by a friend or family member, those who owned a manufactured unit in a

park where they rented the pad, and those who rented a home of any kind.


All eligible households are encouraged to complete an interest form with details about their

current housing needs. As each homeownership opportunity becomes available, names will

be drawn from a pool that matches the size and location requirements as expressed on the

interest form. If selected, the individual or family will have an opportunity to view the home,

learn about mortgage requirements and/or tax implications of any gifted equity in the home,

and make a decision if they wish to proceed.


To be considered for homeownership opportunities through this program, complete the Echo

Mountain Wildfire Recovery Homeownership Interest Form. This form can be found

online at https://bit.ly/WildfireHomeownership. For questions or to receive a copy of the

interest form by mail or email, contact Heather Johnson at the Community Services

Consortium, hjohnson@communityservices.us or 458.233.3464.
