Home Repairs Made Affordable

Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley offers 2 programs in Hayward to make affordable home repairs.

In partnership with the City of Hayward, Habitat offers a limited number of repair grants to homeowners including mobile homes. The City of Hayward directly offers low-income households reduced utility rates.

Habitat also administers the Renew Alameda County program, funded by Measure A1 Bond funds, for projects from $15,000 - $200,000.  Renew Alameda County (Renew AC) empowers low-income homeowners to remain safely in their homes. The program provides affordable, low-interest deferred payment loans to qualified homeowners. 

These loans will be used for home improvement projects that help create a safe and comfortable home. While the program is an Alameda County Housing & Community Development initiative, the program is operated by Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley. To apply, visit RenewAC.org.

Current Program Availablity & Timeline: Due to the high volume of applications we receive year‐round for the Hayward grant program all homeowners interested in applying only to the grant program are currently being added to a waitlist. However, the Renew Alameda County loan program (for projects from $15,000 - $150,000) is open for enrollment.
