Repair a Home: The Process

Habitat for Humanity of Central Lane works to eliminate sub-standard housing by assisting low-income veterans, seniors and disabled homeowners with minor exterior home repairs. Typical projects include exterior painting, accessibility ramps, gutter repair, fence repair, deck and stair repair, and overgrown brush removal. Habitat does not paint homes where lead-based paint is present.

To get started, follow these easy steps:

Step 1: 
Read Do I Qualify? to determine your eligibility and the eligibility of your property.

Step 2: 
Visit the office to receive an application or download it here. Return your completed application to: Habitat for Humanity for Central Lane, 1210 Oak Patch Road, Eugene, Oregon, 97402.

Step 3: 
A construction assessment will be scheduled to determine the scope of the work needed on the home. Habitat will access a credit report for the applicant and co-applicant. A selection committee will review the completed application, credit report(s), and scope of work to determine project eligibility.

Step 4: 
Once the application is approved, an agreement is signed between the homeowner and Habitat for Humanity of Central Lane outlining the scope of work to be performed, the amount of volunteer time or “sweat equity” required, and the terms of the zero-interest loan repayment.

Step 5:
Your project gets scheduled. Volunteers are recruited and materials are ordered for your home improvement project. A minor repair can make a major difference!
