Home Preservation and Repair
Are you a homeowner needing help with repairs?
Partner homeowners must have a need for the repairs, an ability to pay for materials, subcontractor services and project support cost through a zero interest loan or one-time payment, and have a willingness to partner with Habitat.
Home Preservation and Repair is a home repair program which uses volunteer labor to substantially reduce the cost of home repairs for qualified homeowners.
Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County wants all partner homeowners to have a safe, attractive and efficient home, which leads to better communities.
Each project will be designed and planned in consultation with the partner homeowner. The final scope and cost of the project will be determined by Habitat and work will not be performed without homeowner approval.
Need for Repairs
Our program includes interior and exterior work. Examples of needs include but are not limited to:
- Peeling Paint
- Leaking and/or worn roof
- Need of wheelchair ramp
- Unsafe porch, steps, railings, floors
- Overgrown landscaping
- Weatherization needs
- Accessibility Issues
- Other repairs
Ability to Pay
Applicants must be able to repay for the project through monthly installment payments or a one-time payment. Habitat serves those who have a stable income between the 30%- 60% HUD Area Median Income Limits. This is calculated by using the income before taxes. Habitat has the ability to count Food and Nutritional Services, SSI and other government assistance as income.
Willingness to Partner
Applicants must own and be living in the conventionally built home in need of repairs. Habitat requires a commitment to the community by having lived or worked in Lincoln County for the last 12 months. Applicants must be willing to perform "sweat equity" hours by working alongside volunteers. Alternative contributions can be approved if you are physically unable to participate in the project.
