Repairs

Does Your Home Need Repair?

The Home Repair and Preservation Program helps homeowners with low incomes restore and maintain their homes. Habitat for Humanity will partner with homeowners to alleviate critical health and safety issues and complete needed home improvement projects.

How It Works

Eligible Repairs May Include:

Midland County Habitat for Humanity works with low and moderate income homeowners to address critical repair needs. Projects are funded by grants, private donations or a combination of the two depending on funding availability.

We do not assist with projects that are strictly cosmetic. We do a “priority/ needs-based” assessment of the property for all eligible candidates.

 

Habitat serves as the general contractor and may complete repair projects in-house using staff and volunteers or hire subcontractors, depending on the nature of the work.

 

Most residents accepted into the program receive a deferred 0%-interest loan for the cost of repairs.
