The Emergency Home Repair (EHR) program addresses an unmet regional need for no-cost emergency home repairs for low-income households in crisis, and facilitates access to supplemental resources and programs. Volunteer teams work under the direction of Habitat staff and volunteer supervisors to complete the repairs. Reach out to your local social services agency or non-profits organizations, which may have funds available through grants. Homeowners must meet the following basic program criteria to be eligible for the Habitat LA Home Repair Program.
With such affordable payments, now you can make those much needed energy efficiency repairs. The homeowners may select a contractor from this list or provide the name of a contractor to be certified to complete repairs using federal funds. We provide home repair year-round at our Tuskegee site, but can only work with families in the Livingston area during the summer.
The work is challenging – many of the homes we repair are older and may not have been constructed according to building standards. Within 2-3 weeks, they mailed me a confirmation about receiving the camera and that repairs would be free of charge. It may be easier to tack down a bit of worn carpet than repair a large patch damaged by prolonged misuse.
Either a parent or the merit badge counselor may supervise the Scout’s work on any Home Repairs requirements. Volunteer teams work under the direction of Habitat staff and volunteer supervisors to complete the repairs. All non-energy-related repairs approved since 12/1/1991 count toward this maximum.
They immediately emailed me a UPS label and I sent off the camera to the repair facility in Illinois. If you are having a home repair emergency, or wondering if you are eligible, please contact our Emergency Home Repair Coordinator at (802) 722-4575 or toll-free (800) 464-9951, Ext.
