Applications Available for 2024 Home Repair and 2025 New Home Projects

Kootenai Valley Partners is currently accepting applications for our upcoming projects.

In 2024, we will be doing A Brush with Kindness home repair work. This is a program for south Lincoln County residents who currently own their home, but need critical maintenance or repair. Kootenai Valley Partners and volunteers will coordinate and perform repair work, and then issue the homeowner a no-interest loan for the cost of materials and any contracted labor.

In 2025, we will be building a new home for a partner family. The selected family will coordinate and work with Kootenai Valley Partners to build a new home, to be purchased by the family with a no-interest affordable loan. Home loan amounts are determined by cost of materials and the partner family’s income. This is a great opportunity for a low-income family to gain housing stability through sweat equity with no down payment or upfront cost.
