We believe that every veteran deserves a safe, decent, and affordable place to live. That is why Habitat Capital Region is a Veteran Build affiliate, dedicated to intentionally serve and engage Veteran and Active Duty Military households in all areas of our work.
Every veteran deserves an affordable place to live. Veterans are encouraged to apply to Habitat Capital Region’s Homeownership Program for an affordable path to homeownership.
The Critical Home Repair Program provides access to affordable exterior home repairs for low- to moderate-income homeowners. Qualified applicants receive repairs at a discounted rate based on their annual household income. When possible, Habitat Capital Region partners with local veteran funding resources to reduce the portion of the repair cost that veteran applicants are responsible for paying.
"When Habitat [Capital Region] steps in and provides those gaps in services that our veterans need, it's life changing." - Natrenah Blackstock, Ingham County Director of Veteran Affairs
Our ramp program serves people in need of safe and independent access in and out of their homes and is a fantastic resource for many veterans. This program serves both homeowners and renters.
"If you give people a little bit of power to feel good about themselves, they're going to do better." Talib, veteran ramp recipient
Veterans have the opportunity to volunteer alongside other veterans, civilian volunteers, and habitat homebuyers working on their own homes! We also schedule special Veteran Build Days and veteran outreach events.
