Home Repair

Caroline County Habitat for Humanity believes it is important to revitalize and accommodate aging homes throughout the community so current homeowners can live in safe, decent, and affordable homes for many years to come.

Caroline Habitat for Humanity uses the 504 Home Repair Program , offered by the USDA. This program provides loans to very-low-income homeowners to repair, improve, or modernize their homes as well as grants to elderly very-low-income homeowners to remove health and safety hazards.

Applicant qualifications include:
Owning and occupying the house in need of repairs;
Be unable to obtain affordable credit elsewhere
Have a family income below 50 percent of the area median income
For grants, be age 62 or older and not be able to repay a repair loan
Caroline County Habitat for Humanity is currently looking for families who are interested in participating in this program.

The first step to apply is to attend a Home Repair Presentation. These are held monthly, visit our calendar page for our next scheduled presentation. If you’re unable to attend please contact Daronte to schedule a one on one presentation.
