Our Roof Repair Program helps low- and moderate-income homeowners keep their homes safe and livable. Habitat Buffalo completes needed repairs and helps homeowners access an interest-free loan to cover the costs.
Current Habitat Buffalo homeowners may also request accessibility services (such as wheelchair ramps) and minor exterior home preservation services. Services will be repaid through a loan modification to existing mortgage or direct invoice for home preservation services.
Demonstration of need.
The repair must be needed to keep the home safe and livable. Eligible applicants are those unable to pay for the repair without Habitat’s help.
Willingness to partner.
Families in our program partner with Habitat Buffalo by completing “sweat equity,” helping to complete the repair on their own home or building the homes of others in our homeownership program.
Ability to repay an affordable loan.
Once the work is complete, families repays an affordable loan for the cost of the work. These payments are used to fund the construction of more homes for future families.
