Home Repair

Home Repair Program

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Providence’s Home Repair Program builds on Habitat’s traditional partnership model using affordable payment options, sweat equity, and volunteer labor to serve homeowners who need a hand-up to maintain their homes, make necessary critical repairs, or pay utility bills.

Home Repair Program Application Steps:
Receive Program Information

Attend a Home Repair Program information session to learn more about the program and determine if you are eligible to apply. If traveling to an information session is a hardship for you, our team can meet you in your home.

Submit Application

Homeowners are evaluated on the same core criteria as our Homeownership Program: the ability to repay the affordable loan, need for repair services, and willingness to partner with Habitat through the duration of the repair project.

Home Assessment

Habitat conducts a home assessment to determine if the home is a good fit for the program’s provided services.

Decision

If accepted, homeowners typically hear back from Habitat within thirty (30) days with the project work scope and payment arrangements. Habitat’s team meets with each accepted family to discuss the project and collect a deposit payment.

Project Completion

Upon the completion of the work scope, our team meets again with the homeowner to sign off on the project.

Repayment

The homeowner pays off a portion of the project cost in monthly installments. Loan amounts are determined on a sliding scale based on income to ensure affordability.
