Rock the Block Fox Crossing

Rock the Block is
Coming to Fox Crossing!

Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity not only offers housing assistance for families to buy affordable homes, we revitalize neighborhoods through Rock the Block events and our Home Repair Program. Our next event is in Fox Crossing in the fall of 2022.

Rock the Block brings together residents, municipalities and community partners to complete exterior home repairs for low-income homeowners. These projects improve and beautify neighborhoods, increase property values and have a ripple effect on all homes in targeted neighborhoods.

Our Rock the Block program works on both residential and community-based projects, providing affordable repairs including:

  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Window and door replacement
  • Porch repairs
  • Exterior repairs and improvements
  • Painting
  • Landscaping

To see what a Rock the Block event looks like, watch the video below!

Rock the Block is Affordable

Eligible homeowners who participate in the Rock the Block program pay for out-of-pocket expenses related to their home improvement project with a Fox Cities Habitat 0% interest deferred loan. The cost to the homeowner is kept low with their own “sweat equity” going into their home updates and the no-cost labor from volunteers and community members.

Loan payments and community contributions go back into Fox Cities Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization Investment Fund to financially support community projects and related program expenses.

How Rock the Block Works

Eligibility is based on income guidelines, and proof of home ownership. Cost of exterior repairs can be secured by a zero-interest deferred loan, or paid in full up front. Loan must be repaid upon moving or selling of the home. Qualified exterior repairs include but are not limited to: painting, gutters, roofing, siding, porch repair, and door and window replacement.

Habitat for Humanity is:

  • Providing lower-income homeowners with affordable exterior home preservation services
  • Offering up to $3,000 in a 0% interest deferred loan. Homeowner will be responsible for initial 10% down payment
  • Homeowner may be eligible for up to $7,500 depending on extent of repairs
