Application for Home Repair Service
Fill this section out if you are applying with another member of your household. If your home is jointly owned, you MUST include the co-owner as your co-applicant.
If you are applying on behalf of yourself, you do not need to fill out this section.
As we apply for grants and continue to serve our community, collecting the following data is useful. This is optional, and your responses will not impact your application.
Habitat for Humanity focuses on strengthening communities through service. To be considered for Habitat for Humanity Snohomish County Home Repair Service, applicants must be willing to participate in the process. Your participation is called “sweat equity”. The level of sweat equity will be based on the scope of repair work and your ability to assist.
Sweat equity comes in many forms including help with prep work, clean up, and construction, as well as providing food or beverages for the volunteer work crew. The total hours of sweat equity can be split between family and friends to suit each individual’s ability. The number of sweat equity hours will be determined before the Repair Service Agreement is signed.
