Do you need help with repairs to your home? Manatee Habitat now has a program for qualified homeowners in Manatee County called “A Brush with Kindness.” The program enables homeowners to partner with Habitat volunteers to work on short term exterior home repair projects for their home.
Eligible repairs include scraping, caulking and painting homes, minor roof and siding, yard clean up/junk removal, door/window /porch repair and building ramps. Some funding is available in designated communities in Manatee County to cover the cost of materials.
Homeowners must own and occupy thier home, be current on homeowner insurance and taxes and meet Habitat income qualifications. For an application please call 941-748-9100 ext 102.
