Owner Occupied Repair Loans
HFHMR offers owner occupied repairs through the following programs.
A Brush With Kindness (ABWK)
The ABWK program is a partnership program to help eligible families who need assistance with small exterior repair jobs, exterior painting, outside tidiness and other such assignments. All of the work is completed by volunteers. The homeowner pays for most of the materials — never to exceed 5% of their monthly income. If we paint the home's exterior, the paint base is free, but the cost of tinting is paid for by the homeowner.
HFHMR, in coordination with other volunteer agencies and organizations, can build wheelchair ramps for eligible families. Homeowners pick up the cost for the materials and HFHMR provides the volunteer labor. Some limited 0% interest loans, with manageable monthly payments, are available. Materials for wheelchair ramps cost about $25 per linear foot.
Porches, decks, siding, and window replacements are also exterior repair projects.
We now offer a separate application if you are in need of a wheelchair ramp. This application can be found here.
Critical Home Repair Loan Program
HFHMR can offer loans to eligible families to make critical, but minor, repairs to their home. Critical repairs include:
- Roof repair or replacement
- Home access repairs
- Window upgrades
- Water heater replacement
- Heating and cooling replacement
