How to Apply for Home Repairs
How the Program Works
The Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (HFH GLA) HOME REPAIR PROGRAM helps low-income homeowners alleviate health and safety issues in and around their home. Through our HOME REPAIR PROGRAM, homeowners are able to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. The program aligns with HFH GLA’s desire to serve more households in a manner consistent with the organization’s principles, values and mission.
Interested homeowners must:
- Own a home within the HFH GLA service area
- Be the primary residence of the applicant(s) and/or qualifying household member(s)
- Have a household income below 80% AMI (see eligibility chart below)
- Demonstrate a need for home repairs
- Agree to repay repairs through a deferred, monthly-payment free, zero-interest loan that is due upon sale, refinance or transfer of property for projects with a larger scope of work and/or costs, homeowners
- Be willing to partner with HGH GLA through direct participation
- Demonstrate proof of veteran status (veteran homeowners or veteran household members) if applying under the Habitat for Heroes Program

THE HOME REPAIR PROGRAM is a partnership that relies on the homeowner’s involvement and participation. If selected for home repairs, homeowners must be willing to partner with HFH GLA in a variety of ways, including:
- Signing a Homeowner Neighborhood Covenant – homeowners pledge to partner with HFH GLA and perform the expected commitments of the program
- Completing 24 sweat equity hours – the homeowner, a household member or friend of the homeowner must be on site and willing to work in various capacities throughout the duration of the home repairs, as well as perform approved non-construction activities
Applications are accepted throughout the year with projects completed as funds and volunteers become available. Participant selection is based on the financial need of the homeowner and the condition of the home. However, funding is limited and not all qualified applicants will be selected
