The mission of House Method Gives Back is to improve our neighborhoods one block at a time.
For individuals, House Method recognizes the difficulty that homeownership represents for so many. For new homeowners struggling to update their first house, seasoned homeowners working to balance limited budgets and time, and seniors hoping to age in place, House Method supports these individuals by providing grants to fund their home improvement needs.
For organizations, House Method understands the critical work that community-building organizations play in our neighborhoods. Whether focused on local revitalization efforts, affordable housing, or community and business growth, we offer grants to further the impact of these organizations.
We especially want to invest in our hometown of Raleigh-Durham and will therefore reserve one grant per quarter for a local recipient.
