Home Repairs Program to Launch

DC Habitat is hard at work organizing a new Home Repairs Program, to begin serving low-income homeowners this coming spring/summer season. The program will be a natural extension of our affordable housing mission, helping to provide affordable home repairs for those in need, keep seniors in their homes, revitalize neighborhoods, and preserve DC’s affordable housing stock. Repair projects will include such tasks as painting, landscaping, building accessibility ramps and light weatherization work.

As with our homeownership program, applicants will need to meet income requirements and work alongside our staff and volunteers to complete the projects, in return for getting repairs at discounted rates. DC Habitat will utilize donated materials, funding from sponsors and the service of volunteers in completing these projects.
