Are You in Need of Home Repairs?
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) assists low-income homeowners to restore and maintain their homes through our Home Repair Program.
Habitat LA’s Home Repair Program aims to alleviate critical health and safety issues for low income homeowners in our greater Los Angeles service area. Habitat LA partners with homeowners each year as funding becomes available. Eligible homeowners can receive assistance with interior and exterior home repairs including exterior painting, accessibility modifications, window, door and roof replacements, landscaping, and more.
Homeowners pay for these repair services through one of two affordable repayment plans. Homeowners may either make an affordable one-time payment or agree to a forgiven loan. One-time payments are equal to 3% of the total project costs and would be no greater than $450 total. The Home Repair Program loans are interest free and require no down payment or monthly payment. Homeowners repay the total project costs if they sell, transfer or re-finance their home. After seven years, the loan is completely forgiven. Repayment funds are recycled and used to assist future low-income homeowners in need of repairs. Homeowners must also be willing to contribute 24 Sweat Equity hours throughout the duration of their repair project.
