The Habitat Boone County Repair program is designed to aid Boone County homeowners with exterior home preservation repairs. Simple tasks like repairing a shutter, painting the porch railing, or trimming overgrown landscape plants may prove too physically demanding for a homeowner. The Repair Team will have the necessary tools and know-how to repair the homeowner's property.
Am I Eligible?
A homeowners may qualify for the Repair program if you meet all of the following criteria:
You must own and live in your home full-time in Boone County
There must be an identified need for the requested repairs
Your property taxes, mortgage, and insurance must all be current
You meet program gross income guidelines
What is the Cost?
First, a qualified construction representative will come to assess your work project. A total cost will be determined based on required materials, and any contract labor that may be necessary.
Having calculated the repair cost, the homeowner's portion will be determined bases on a sliding scale figuring the Area Median Family Income (AMFI), and the household income. The project will need to be paid in full before work begins.
In addition to the dollar amount, homeowners are required to participate in the form of "sweat equity". The number of hours is dependent on scope and nature of the project.
What Work is Done?
A Construction representative from HFHBC will prepare a list of the requested home repairs. It may include any of the following:
Landscape care - pruning, cleanup and mulching
Power washing exterior surfaces
Gutter repair, cleaning and/or installation of gutter screens
Concrete work: repair or installation of sidewalks
Ramps and rails outside the house
Other repairs may be considered
Work will not include any interior or extensive exterior projects such as structural modifications or work to correct previous construction flaws. Also, not included is remediation of any environmental hazard (mold, Radon, asbestos, lead, etc.)
