Critical Home Repair

We are only accepting home repair applications from households with a veteran (served or currently serving in any branch of U.S. military) at this time. We are not currently accepting applications from households without a veteran member.  All non-veteran applications received after 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25 will not be processed. If no member of your household is a veteran, you may be able to apply for our critical home repair program during our next general application period, to open in 2021.

Please check back here for updates or contact April Smith, Family Services Director, at (859)252-2224 Ext. 112 or AprilS@lexhabitat.org with questions.

Completed applications may be returned by (1) mailing to or placing in a drop box at 700 E Loudon Ave Lexington, KY 40505, (2) scanning and emailing to AprilS@lexhabitat.org or (3) by fax to 859-252-0545.

After an application is submitted, Lexington Habitat will respond by mail indicating the supporting documents that are necessary to complete the application. Applicants will be scored and ranked by level of need. Not all applications will be approved.

All owners of the property must participate in the application process and the application must include required information for all owners and household members.
