Habitat for Humanity of Utah County has expanded its mission to include critical home repair and preservation. As part of this mission expansion, we have purchased, renovated, and sold seven homes to local families and has completed over 70 critical home repair and home preservation projects for area low-income homeowners including roof repair, floor replacement, and accessible ramp installation.

Habitat for Humanity of Utah County currently offers critical home repair and preservation grants and no-interest loans up to $15,000 to low-income homeowners, seniors and Veterans living in Utah County (except Lehi) and works with professional labor and volunteers to complete the needed repairs and projects. Grants and loans will be used to repair critical damage to a home or eliminate immediate hazards to health, safety, and/or sanitation. Grants and loans will also be used for home preservation activities, such as, exterior painting, fence and porch repair, and property clean-up and maintenance.
