Neighbor to Neighbor applications being accepted.

AMBER TOWNSHIP — Habitat for Humanity of Mason County is currently accepting applications from homeowners for its spring Neighborhood Revitalization (N2N) projects. The deadline to apply is Feb. 8.

N2N is an exterior home preservation program that offers painting, carpentry, landscaping, weather stripping, siding, roofing, door/window replacement and minor exterior repairs for homeowners in need. Applicants are encouraged to rally their neighbors to also apply as the projects serve two to three homes, not just one.

The program helps low-income homeowners who need extra assistance with home repairs in order to improve quality of life by addressing safety concerns, reducing utility cost and deducing blight in the community.

In its fourth year, the program looks to revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, encourage connections within the community and help preserve affordable housing stock.

“Neighbor to Neighbor is about connecting people and restoring homes through simple acts of

kindness, so that homeowners can once again live in a safe and decent home,” said Jamie Healy, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Mason County.

“This program would not be possible without volunteers, donors and other stakeholders who are willing to make a difference in our community.”

To be considered for the program, submit an application to Habitat for Humanity of Mason County. Applications can be picked up at the Habitat ReStore, the Lakeshore Resource Network or online at masoncountyhabitat.org/neighbor-to-neighbor.

Neighborhoods with multiple applicants will receive higher consideration with the committee.

Once a neighborhood is determined, Habitat for Humanity of Mason County will work with volunteers to come alongside the homeowners in completing repairs. To volunteer to be a part of the crew of a project, visit masoncountyhabitat.org/volunteering.
