Donations of Land in Somerset or Hunterdon County

RVHFH is committed to building affordable housing in Hunterdon and Somerset County and is always searching for land suitable for building single family homes.

Building lots must be:

  • Located in Somerset County or Hunterdon County
  • Suitable for building a modest home, duplex, or cluster of homes
  • Located in a neighborhood appropriate for raising a family.

While discounts and donations of suitable lots are graciously accepted, they are not required. We sometimes pay fair market value for appropriate lots, and we finance our purchases internally without drawn out loan approvals. Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization, so any donations or discounts below fair market value are tax-deductible.

We would be happy to perform a first-cut evaluation of your lot and hold a no-obligation discussion of possible acquisition arrangements. We have experience dealing with “challenged” properties, including those with liens, title problems, and zoning questions. The members of our committee are all volunteers, people of integrity, who are not working for a commission or profit. In our careers we are engineers, planners, real estate, and business professionals. We have the expertise to evaluate the potential of your property quickly and with respect for you and your land. If you are considering selling your property or would like to see how you can help as a volunteer, please contact us at or 908-704-0016.

We’re looking for planners, attorneys, realtors, bankers, tax assessors, and collectors willing to provide their expertise to help us through the process of locating, evaluating, negotiating, and acquiring land for future projects. Join the Property Acquisitions Team and you’ll make a huge difference in the lives of our future Homeowners! Contact us at
