Repairs

Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley offers two programs in Hayward to make repairs that directly impact a homeowner’s health, safety and quality of life.

In partnership with the City of Hayward, Habitat offers a limited number of repair grants to home owners, mobile homes included. The City of Hayward directly offers low-income households reduced utility rates--find out more here.

Habitat also administers the Renew Alameda County program, funded by Measure A1 Bond funds, for projects from $15,000 - $150,000.  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. The program is administered by Alameda County with funding provided by Alameda County taxpayers who approved the Measure A1 Housing Bond in November 2016. While the program is an Alameda County Housing & Community Development initiative, the program is operated by Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley. To learn more and apply, visit RenewAC.org
