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 us back for the cost of the project materials. There may be an additional charge for labor if a licensed contractor is required.
Before your project begins, a zero-interest payment plan based on your income will be established and agreed to.
Your requirement in our partnership will be 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.
An approved family will be required to make a down payment of $50 to $100.
