Rebuilding Together Sacramento offers many programs at no cost to low-income homeowners who live in Sacramento or El Dorado counties.  We require an application and proof of income to receive our no cost services. If you don’t meet the income guidelines below for the free services, please read the Fee For Service section.

Below is a description of our Home Improvement programs, as well as the applications to submit for any of these programs.

Fee for Service

This program provides minor repairs and modifications that improve accessibility and safety within the home… for those who do NOT qualify as “Low-Income” homeowners. The ‘fee’ paid provides the following: A complimentary home safety inspection with recommendations (no application necessary!) and a quick and immediate scheduling of your installation by qualified and experienced installers. Any funds raised are returned to the Safe at Home program and cover “free” services provided to low-income homeowners.

Rebuild Day Events – Spring 2016 in Rancho Cordova (April 30, 2016) 

* We host various home repair events where an average of 40 volunteers work on each home.  Rebuild Day events occur in specific neighborhoods in the spring and fall.  Homeowners are notified when their neighborhood is selected and provided an opportunity to apply for services.

* The work for this program is provided by volunteers.

We are partnering with the city of Rancho Cordova and will be focusing our Spring Rebuild Day on the White Rock/Cordova Towne neighborhood.
Our next Rebuild Day will be Saturday, October 8, 2016 in South Sacramento. Details to follow this summer!

Home Energy Conservation Program

 * The Home Energy Conservation Program provides minor energy conservation measures such as weather stripping, caulking, CFL or LED light bulbs, etc. that increase comfort in the home, reduce greenhouse gases by up to 1 ton per home annually, and help lower a homeowner’s utility bill by as much as 10-20%.  Implemented as a partnership, this program is a joint effort of Rebuilding Together Sacramento,  Sacramento Association of Realtors Foundation, Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District, and UC Davis Dept. of Civil & Environmental Engineering.  The work is provided year-round by an experienced staff member.

Wait time:  1-2 weeks
