Habitat Worcester County Announces 3rd Application Round for Critical Home Repairs

Habitat Worcester County Announces 3rd Application Round for Critical Home Repairs

We are pleased to announce our 3rd open application round of 2018 starting July 1st through July 31st. This round  we are focusing on Critical Home Repairs thanks to the generous grant we received from the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore. 

Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County completes critical repairs and rehabs for existing Worcester County homeowners who are otherwise unable to complete the work themselves or obtain a conventional loan to do so. HFHWC participates in the national Habitat exterior repair program. Examples of critical home repairs are roofing, exterior painting, accessibility, weatherization and repair of other structural issues such as porch, stairs, siding and gutters.

Qualified Worcester County homeowners must be able to demonstrate a need for critical home repair and the ability to pay for the repairs. Families must earn between 30% - 80% of the AMI for Worcester County (as defined by HUD) to qualify. Qualified homeowners must be willing to partner with HFHWC and work side by side with volunteers, also known as “sweat equity” hours. 

All applicants must be residents of Worcester County for at least one year, own a home and provide proof of current homeowner’s insurance and are subject to credit and background checks.  Application fee is $30.

Individuals or families interested in applying for the Critical Home Repair Program should visit www.habitatworcester.org/family-services to review the guidelines and determine eligibility. For questions please email inquire@habitatworcester.org or call (410) 208-4440. The application round ends on July 31, 2018.
