Home Repair Loan Program
Last year 62% of the people that we served were seniors. As the boomer population is aging, the need to assist those in our area is growing. 29% are disabled. Many are living on a fixed and limited income. Keeping their home in good repair or updating the home to provide accessibility for health reasons is essential to allow them to live at home. Statistically, it is far more economical to keep a person in their home rather then move to an assisted living residence. While MVAC has a home repair program in place through the state of Minnesota, that program is for repairs that are $2000 or more. Many times the repairs needed are less than that. On a limited budget, households are choosing to go without essential items or make the improvement. This program would allow them to rest easy and fix the problem before it gets too bad.
