Eligibility, Repair Program

Do I qualify?

To be eligible for a critical home repair under our Aging in Place program, applicants must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Pierce County resident
  • Own and occupy the home
  • Age 60+ or a disabled Veteran of the US Military
  • Household income between 50% – 80% Area Medium Income (see chart below)
  • Willingness to partner by helping with the work in some way if physically able (what Habitat calls “sweat equity”) and/or paying a portion of the repair costs

I meet the requirements. What are my next steps?

Complete the Intake Form

Start by filling out our basic intake form. If you need assistance completing the form, contact us at 253-627-5626 x 129 and we can do the intake by phone.

Site Visit

If you meet our basic intake requirements, we will contact you to schedule a time to visit your home and assess the proposed work to be done.

Complete Full Application

After the site visit, we will prepare an Application and Agreement that contains the scope of work and estimate for sweat equity and/or payment. When you return the Application and Agreement, you will need to provide proof of identity, household income, and homeownership as well as make the minimum $50 down payment.

Scheduling

Once your Application and Agreement is received and verified we will schedule a time to begin the work and do our best to complete it in a timely manner.

Note: Our ability to serve Aging in Place Home Repair clients is funding dependent. Projects will be accepted and scheduled as long as funds are available.

What If I don't meet the requirements?

Pierce County Human Services maintains a comprehensive list of Home Repair Options. Please check this list for appropriate resources.

If, after contacting these other resources, you are still unable to get the help you need, please email aip@tpc-habitat.org with an explanation of your situation and we will attempt to help where we can.
