Critical Home Repair Program

Through the Critical Home Repair Program, Habitat Spartanburg helps Spartanburg County homeowners maintain the health, safety, and accessibilty of their homes by offering critical exterior repairs at a fraction of the actual costs.

How does the program work?

Those approved for this program receive critical exterior repair work on their homes at about 10% of the actual cost. Common projects involve roofing, siding, gutters, wheelchair ramps, porches, and railings. Please note that we are limited to OUTDOOR repair work only and cannot complete indoor or underground repairs.

 

To date, we have served more than 20 families through this program, helping them remain safely in their longtime homes!
 

Are we accepting applications?

We ARE accepting applications to the Critical Home Repair Program at this time, but please note that they are being processed on a rolling basis as space becomes available.

We estimate that new applicants should expect a wait time of 3 to 6 months or more for their applications to be processed, and 0 to 3 months for repair work after approval.

The exact timing may vary, so we recommend applying as soon as possible if you are need of this assistance.
We are currently prioritizing applications from VETERANS living anywhere in Spartanburg County and from homeowners in the Highlands, Northside, Spartanburg Regional, South Converse and Enoree areas.
