Small Steps in Atlantic County!

What is Small Steps?

Small Steps is a subprogram of Neighborhood Revitalization that seeks to support small-scale revitalization, sustainability, and community building efforts.

With the support of local communities and individuals such as yourself, we believe these “small steps” will make a big impact.


This round of Small Steps is looking for neighborhoods in Atlantic County!

  • Do you live in Atlantic County and want to inspire your neighbors to take small steps to revitalize their home and community?
  • Could you and your neighbors use minor fixes such as landscaping, painting, minor carpentry repairs including decks, doors, porches, steps, and more?

How it works:

  • Cost: $50
    • $25 will to go Habitat for Humanity
    • The homeowner will use the remaining $25 to purchase an item for a neighbor’s exterior! (Flags, planter, flowers, lawn ornament, etc)
  • For $50, the homes selected within the nominated neighborhood will receive $500 worth of Home Preservation repairs (minor, exterior repairs including painting, power washing, landscaping, minor carpentry repairs and more).
  • Homeowners will work with Habitat staff to determine what repairs will be completed.

Homeowner Selection:

(Within the nominated and selected neighborhood)

  • Must live within the boundaries of selected neighborhood
  • Must OWN home for a minimum of 3 years
  • Must be your primary residence
  • Certify you have no intention to move or sell the home for 3 years
  • The home must not be an investment property
  • Must be current on mortgage, property taxes, insurance, and all municipal lien-able accounts.

*Homeowners will NOT be required to submit income verification, but will be asked to estimate their total gross yearly income.
