Neighborhood Revitalization Local Celebrity Day

Neighborhood Revitalization

Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization program partners with homeowners to assist them in maintaining a safe place to live. It includes home preservation projects like exterior painting, weatherization, and minor exterior repairs. We have completed over 180 Neighborhood Revitalization and A Brush With Kindness projects since 2010.

It is common for home maintenance to be deferred, when basic expenses exceed income month after month. Years of this can cause a downward spiral of home deterioration and unsafe living conditions.

  • Are you facing challenges keeping your home in livable condition?
  • Have you had to choose between paying for food, medication, taxes and basic utilities?
  • Are you facing city code violations or homeowner insurance cancellation due to the condition of your home?

See our list of available services for more information.


  • The home must be owner-occupied and located in Minnehaha, Lincoln or Turner Counties.
  • The homeowner must qualify as low-income. See the application below for income guidelines.
  • The scope of work must match our program resources.
  • Homeowners are expected to be cooperative partners with Habitat staff and volunteers.
  • Homeowners will reimburse Habitat Sioux Falls for the supplies used to complete the project.

Once a homeowner’s eligibility is determined and their application is accepted, Habitat Sioux Falls provides volunteer groups to assist homeowners in completing minor repairs, painting and yard work.
