Critical Home Repair Program (CHRP)
A small repair can make a MAJOR difference.
Critical Home Repair Program helps low-come families address critical needs in their homes by focusing on safety, accessibility and meeting municipal codes. By offering home improvements for a low cost home owners, the program will help preserve and ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing in our community to allows seniors age longer in place.
Critical Home Repair repayment will be based on household income. A sliding scale will determine the direct cost for partner families. The partner family will be responsible for 15% to 40% of the actual cost of repair and this will be repaid to Habitat. Repayment options include a 0% interest loan. Exact terms of the loan will vary, but the monthly payment will be based on income and current expenses, and will not be burdensome.
PLEASE NOTE: Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County does NOT work on properties for homeowners who not live in their home.
