Home Repair Application

About The Process

Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County (HfHPC) builds homes with people in our community and sells the houses at no profit and no interest to households who otherwise could not afford to own a home. The program also prepares partner families to be successful homeowners.

*Pre-qualifications for Habitat for Humanity Housing are currently closed. No pre-qualifications will be taken at this time. Updates for applying to the Habitat program will be posted online in January 2020.

What kind of home repair service does the partnership offer?

  • “Aging in Place” Modifications: ramps or accessibility upgrades designed to accommodate physical mobility limitations
  • Critical Home Repairs: roof replacement, plumbing, electric, structural repairs
  • Energy Efficiency Upgrades: insulation, HVAC
  • Exterior Enhancements: paint, landscaping

What will I be required to do if I qualify for the partnership?

Homeowners qualifying for the program will be required to participate in their home repairs work in a process known as “sweat equity.” Hours will vary from 10–25 based on the scope of the work. Sweat equity work will be tailored to suit the homeowner’s physical abilities.

Are the repairs free?

Like Habitat’s program that partners with families to provide affordable homeownership opportunities through a sweat equity commitment and a zero-percent interest mortgage, likewise, the Home Repair Program offers homeowners the opportunity to partner with Habitat to obtain affordable repair services.

Homeowners will be provided a zero-percent interest loan to cover the cost of the repairs. The loan payment will be tailored to ensure affordability for the homeowner.
