The Critical Home Repair Program works in partnership with income qualifying homeowners in need of essential home repairs and improvements to create a safe, healthy, affordable and decent place to live.
Our Critical Home Repair Program is a “hand-up, not a handout” partnership. You will be asked to pay back the cost of the project materials. Additionally, there may be a charge for labor if a licensed contractor is required.
A zero-interest payment plan based on your income is established, and agreed to prior to the start of the project.
As part of our partnership, you will be required to complete sweat equity (volunteer hours).
This is NOT an emergency service. If you are accepted, it may take several months before repairs can begin.
Only repairs addressing health, safety, accessibility issues, or preservation of structural integrity will be considered.
A family that is approved will be required to make a down payment of $50 to $100.
