Senior veterans may receive critical home repairs

The Critical Home Repairs for Senior Veterans Program will be continued by the NW Metro Atlanta Habitat for Humanity in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.

This program serves U.S. Armed Forces veterans who are homeowners, over 50 years old and in need of critical home repairs, according to a news release.

Among these repairs are four main areas:

  • Safe: steps, windows, doors, locks, lighting, electric.
  • Warm: furnace, weatherization, hot water heater.
  • Dry: roofing, siding, plumbing.
  • Accessible: ramps, ADA modifications, accessible kitchens/baths.

Applying for the program is a detailed process.

Veterans who meet the qualification requirements are encouraged to fill out a Critical Home Repairs for Senior Veterans Information Request Form.

Then they will be contacted with further details regarding the process.

Approval for this program is based on the following criteria: senior veteran status; homeownership in Cobb, Douglas or Paulding Counties; a need for critical repairs and annual household income within HUD income limits.
