Things to know:

  • In order to be considered for the Veteran Repair Program a household must have an active duty or general/honorable discharge vet living in the home as their primary residence.
  • Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland Repair and Weatherization is not an emergency or crisis based program. If you have issues within your home which cause an imminent danger to you or members of your household, please see our additional resources page for more information.
  • HFHMM strives to serve as many households as possible. For Homeowners who participated in our Repair, Weatherization, and/or CAPABLE program(s) in 2015 or later, HFHMM will not approve applications for additional services within a 7 year period.
