Home Repairs  Program

By providing affordable home repairs, our Home Repairs Program preserves homeownership for low-income residents while alleviating critical accessibility,health, and safety concerns. All home repairs are performed by licensed contractors and overseen by our skilled construction staff. Qualified homeowners can find help with a variety of interior and exterior repairs not limited to accessibility ramps, grab bars, and more.

Habitat’s Home Repairs Program launched in partnership with LINC Idaho and will continue to bring together partners for collaborative community impact projects.

To qualify for home repair, both the property and applicant must meet the following criteria:


  • The access areas of the home are in disrepair or unsafe, and BVHFH’s scope of work will significantly benefit the homeowner.
  • The homeowner is unable to physically and/or financially complete the work themselves.

Ability to Pay

  • The gross household income (household members 18 years and over will be considered) must fall below 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) based on the current year of HUD Income Guidelines.
  • The homeowner may be responsible for a percentage of repairs costs depending on household income. If applicable, a payment plan will begin the month following the completion of the project and will be paid through equal monthly installments up to two (2) years with 0% interest.
  • The project must be economically feasible under the Program and adhere to the scope of repairs BVHFH offers. The total cost of the initial projects must not exceed $2,500.
  • Payment will be waived for households below 40% of the AMI.


  • The home must be located within Ada County.
  • The homeowner must be current on property taxes, mortgage payments (if applicable), and homeowners insurance premiums.
  • The home must be owner-occupied, a single-family house, and the primary residence of the owner.
