About the Home Repair Program

Our Home Repair Program is designed to work alongside low-to-moderate income households to address critical repairs and safety issues in a home. We are proud to offer this service to eligible residents throughout Marquette County. 

Qualified homeowners can use the program to address a variety of critical home repair needs, such as plumbing, electrical work, roofing, window & door replacements, accessibility modifications, furnace and water heater replacements and more.

Repairs not eligible for the program include mold remediation, moisture issues in basements, and structural issues with foundations, trusses or joists. 

All home repairs are led by trained Habitat staff and subcontractors. Homeowners actively participate in their projects by completing sweat equity, or invested time, into their home. The cost of a repairs are based on the household's income with low-to-moderate incomes qualifying for free or reduced cost repairs. 

Through our repair projects, homeowners are able to restore their homes to being safe, healthy, and decent environments.
