The Community Home Improvement Program (CHIP) provides low interest loans for eligible borrowers to improve or repair the borrower’s present single family home. Finding a good contractor to do repairs and improvements on your home is important. They typically make you pay for shipping on warranty repairs (not this CCD problem), but if you suddenly change your mind and ask if there is any way to fix the prob yourself, as you cannot afford shipping ;P, they soften up and let it slide.
To be eligible for a Home Repair grant you must own and live in the home that will be renovated or repaired. Now it is less than 24 hours since I sent my first email and I have my shipping label to send in the camera for repairs. Once the application is received and reviewed, the Home Repair Program Coordinator will inspect the home to assess the project requirements and cost, which will be added to the application.
Habitat will review the repair list and job costs with the homeowner, for their approval of all costs, before work begins. To learn more about our home-repair loans and the options available to you, contact Lee-Ann Gagnon. Please click on the links above for more information about our parts and services.
I called the repair center and, while the representative could not confirm that I would receive an S5 (he did confirm that that’s what they’ve been sending out lately – fingers crossed!), he did say that Canon has a memory card trade-in program. It’s ultimately YOUR RESPONSIBILITY should YOU DECIDE to try some of the repairs posted here.
It’s a mixed blessing: Rather than repair the S230 as their confirmation letter had indicated, they sent me a refurbished SD600. Our focus for the Wharton Repair Program is a series of short-term projects dedicated to repairing homes of those who, due to a combination of financial hardship, age, and disability, cannot do the work.
