Since January 1, 2023, we have received over 1,000 phone calls in regards to home repair assistance and are in the process of returning those phone calls, so please be patient with us. If you have called and left a message, we will return your call in the order in which it was received and there is no need to continue leaving messages. If you do not have your voicemail box set up on your phone, please set this up before calling so we can leave you a message when we return your call.

Home Repair Programs
Critical Repair Program
The place you call home should never threaten your health, but for many in our community it does just that. Genesee Habitat provides repair services to over 150 qualifying homeowners per year within Genesee County. The program helps low-to-moderate income homeowners alleviate health and safety issues in and around their home. Eligible repairs include roofs, structural damage, porch repair, electric, plumbing, HVAC, handicap accessibility, siding, exterior paint, weatherization and energy efficiency.
City of Flint residents interested in the program can learn more here or download an application through the Flint Home Improvement Fund.
Genesee County residents outside of the City of Flint can learn more with the brochure below or to speak with someone or to apply, please call (810) 766-9089 ext. 216.
