Home Repair Loan Program 

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento, in addition to building affordable homes in the greater Sacramento area, has increased our Neighborhood Revitalization and Home Repair program efforts to serve families in need and work to uplift communities in our region. This program helps to respond to the housing crisis in California by solving health, accessibility and safety concerns in homes owned by low-income families, veterans, and elderly residents on limited incomes. By fixing the long-deferred maintenance projects, critical repairs and code violations, we help families stay in their already affordable homes and avoid displacement.

Habitat’s growing Neighborhood Revitalization effort brings together agencies and partners for collaborative community impact projects in neighborhoods, parks, schools, community centers and collaboratives for the betterment of the community as a whole.

To sign up for information on our Home Repair program and be alerted when we have our next home repair application period, click here.

To qualify for the program, an applicant must meet the three following program requirements:

  1. Applicants must own and occupy the home as a primary residence.
  2. Applicants must be willing to partner with Habitat (this includes contributing sweat equity hours towards the repair project).

Loan application review and approval is made in compliance with Federal Credit Equal Opportunity Act and the Equal Housing Opportunity Act, and on an impartial and non-discriminatory basis. Loans made or arranged pursuant to a California Finance Lenders Law license.
