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.
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!
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.
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.
The application for the Critical Home Repair Program is available for download at the link above. If you would like a hard copy of the application mailed to you, please contact our Financial Administrative Associate, Ronda Villa at 864.707.0277.
Once you complete the application in full and obtain ALL the required documents, you may submit it by one of the following methods:
Applicants must meet 3 qualifications for approval: (1) Need for assistance, (2) Ability to pay, and (3) Willingness to partner. Deails on these qualifications are outlined on the top page of the application packet, which is available for download at the link above.
We WILL consider applications for mobile, manufactured, or multi-family dwellings, but we may be more limited in the types of repairs that we can complete on these homes.
