Applications are accepted year round.
The Fix-A-Home Project is an annual community service project that has been repairing and renovating homes for low-income homeowners in our community since 2006.
One home is chosen each year to receive repairs and upgrades that are made by Volunteers, partnering with area vendors and tradesmen in early Fall. Project will be limited to minor repairs and simple construction.
Please note to qualify for selection:
- The property must be located in the Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Pittsboro or Hillsborough area.
- Household income cannot exceed 80% of the area median income by household size.
You may nominate yourself or another homeowner to be considered for the project.
Applications are accepted through December 31. Application deadline is December 31st for consideration for the next calendar year’s project. DEADLINE EXTENDED: Applications for 2018 project consideration accepted through February 28, 2018.
Members of the Fix-A-Home committee will visit the finalists’ home as part of the review process and the homeowner(s) will be interviewed to verify qualification and scope of work.
Homes under final consideration will be inspected by a licensed home inspector or General Contractor. In the event the home inspection uncovers conditions that are beyond the scope and ability to correct, the FAH Committee will seek another application or revise scope of the project.
Prior to beginning work, the homeowner will be asked to sign a release from liability and permission to participate in media interviews and photographs.
