Apply for Assistance

Home Team Valpo brings both skilled and unskilled volunteers together to help qualifying homeowners make their homes safer and more comfortable. If you’d like your home to be considered for cleanup and/or maintenance during an upcoming event, please read and complete the application below.

HOME TEAM VALPO is a program developed by a group of Valparaiso residents with support from Valparaiso City Government, and in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Porter County to assist low income homeowners with minor property maintenance challenges. Applying for assistance does not guarantee work will be performed or absolve you of your responsibility to maintain your property. HOME TEAM VALPO is a service staffed by volunteers and may not be able to assist in every case.

To qualify, a resident must own the home in which they reside and have an income no greater than 185% of the federally established poverty guidelines.

Priority of home maintenance help is given to senior citizens and physically disabled property owners.

HOME TEAM VALPO will also consider assisting residential homes owned by nonprofit entities. No income qualification is required.

A family that qualifies for free or reduced lunch at the Valparaiso School Corporation will automatically qualify. If you qualify for other public assistance, you may include that information as well. If your application is accepted, additional information may be requested to establish your qualifications.

If you meet these requirements and would like to apply for home maintenance help, please fill out the form below.
