It depends on where you live. It also depends on your income, age and health for some programs. Some cities have a Homebuilders Association that with donated materials do home repairs for people that are elderly and/or handicapped. Then there is government programs in all states and cities that depend on income, age and health. With these programs you have to remain living in the house for five years or pay back a pro-rated amount. Some places this program is called Opportunities for Independent Living, and it called other names in other places.

All of these programs get so many requests for help that they can't begin to fulfill all of the requests. One other solution is do small repairs one at a time. The main objective of being a home owner should be to keep up the home on a yearly basis. I have a sister and brother-in-law that bought a brand new home about 30 years ago and all of sudden this year they are complaining about all of the repairs it needs now and they also said they have never done anything other than paint and new flooring in all these years.
