Rebuilding Together Philadelphia (RTP) works with organized blocks that have at least 10 homeowners who all need repairs.
RTP no longer accepts applications for the repair of individual homes unless you are recruited by our outreach partners in the Emerging [Re]Builders program, the Asthma Trigger Reduction program, or the Middle Neighborhoods Initiative.
To meet block applicant qualifications, you must have:
a block captain or organizer who will gather applications for your block
10 – 15 qualified applicants on your block in need of at least one of the following:
Plumbing and electrical repairs
Floor, wall, and ceiling repairs
Weatherization and energy efficiency upgrades
To qualify, each applicant on your block must:
live in a homeowner-occupied home and be able to provide proof of homeownership
be up-to-date or in a payment plan for real estate taxes
agree to be present on all work days
meet income guidelines and be able to provide proof of income for all residents
