Free Home Repairs for Rural Harris County

Rebuilding Together Houston will now provide free home repairs for low-income homeowners in rural areas of Harris County. Repairs include temperature control equipment such as window AC units, and roof replacements.

Houston, TX, July 12, 2023 --( Rebuilding Together Houston (RTH) is expanding its service areas and will now provide home repairs for low-income homeowners in rural areas of Harris County. There is no cost to the homeowners.

“These repairs are especially important this summer,” explained Rebuilding Together Houston CEO Christine Holland. “Many low-income homeowners can’t afford potentially lifesaving temperature control equipment such as window AC units, while repairs to the home’s exterior and roof can protect a family from catastrophic storm damage during hurricane season.”

According to the USDA, “Helping people stay in their own home and keep it in good repair helps families and their communities. Homeownership helps families and individuals build savings over time. It strengthens communities and helps many kinds of businesses that support the local economy.”

Repairs include roof restoration, structural repairs, plumbing, electrical work and window AC/heater units. The repairs are available immediately after application, qualification and inspection.

Qualifications include:
• Single Family homes in rural areas, as determined by the USDA, in or near these zip codes: 77336, 77375, 77377, 77429, 77433, 77447, 77449, 77484, 77493, 77532, 77561, 77562
• Low-income individuals and families (50% AMI)
• Proof of ownership
• Full time resident of the home
• Current on property taxes (or official payment plan)
• Cannot not own more than one property

Homeowners in these rural areas are encouraged to apply at, email or call 713 659-2511 for prescreening.
