Repairs Program

Durham Habitat’s repairs program is intended to help Durham homeowners with limited income correct substandard housing conditions, which pose an imminent threat to life, safety, or accessibility. 

The program is not designed to meet emergency needs as it may take up to 12-15 months for scheduling and repairs. The goals of the program are to protect Durham’s current affordable housing stock and allow Durham residents to age in place with dignity.
