Home improvement applications now accepted by Rebuilding Together
Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, 1050 33rd Ave. SE, is accepting applications for a variety of home improvement projects for low-income residents in specific communities throughout the metro. Now more than ever, the ability to stay home in a safe and comfortable environment is a major priority, especially for those that are most at-risk. From accessibility ramps, home repairs and added safety features, their donated work allows residents to stay in their home longer, improving their overall quality of life.
The Home Repair program provides safe and healthy housing repairs, including interior improvements (i.e. installing flooring, patching and painting), siding, windows, and landscaping. It also provides contractor-delivered repair or replacement of essential systems, such as HVAC, electrical, plumbing and roofs that are critical to healthy, livable homes. Through funding from the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, the Minnesota Department of Human Services and other partners, they focus on projects for qualified residents living in the seven-county metro area.
The Safe at Home program provides home safety and fall prevention modifications and ramps for older adults or those living with a disability so they can continue to live safely and independently in their own homes. Modifications for the interior of the home can include grab bars for bathrooms, handrails for basement and upstairs steps, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and other updates that allow seniors to safely age in place. Dedicated volunteer teams provide ongoing support to design and build quality, tailored wooden ramps to make homes accessible for all. Safe at Home services are available throughout the entire Twin Cities metro area.
If you are interested in applying for free home repairs or Safe at Home modifications, review eligibility criteria and complete an application by Jan. 15.
