Funding for Rebuilding Together Mohawk Valley projects is made possible by support from our generous sponsors as well as through grant opportunities. We are an entirely volunteer organization comprised of local individuals, and we rely on businesses, organizations and local universities to provide pools of laborers to assist us on our Rebuilding Day and Heroes at Home endeavors.

Because of the nature of our organization and funding opportunities, Rebuilding Together Mohawk Valley typically focuses on two project cycles – spring, with projects generally taking place throughout April, and fall, with projects scheduled throughout September. In order to consider a project, we must have a completed application on file. You may either download an application  below and mail it to us, or fill out our convenient online application form.

The Rebuilding Day program repairs and renovates homes of people who, due to age, financial limitations, or disability, cannot do the work themselves. Hundreds of skilled and unskilled volunteers give their time on the last Saturday in April to create safer, brighter, and warmer environments. Repairs and renovations differ from house to house. The work may include: painting, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, weatherization, clean-up, yard work and other necessary repairs. Applicants must be low-income, elderly or disabled persons who live in the Utica area and both own and live in their home.

Homeowners can apply for assistance and participate alongside volunteers in many ways.
Typically, labor and many supplies are donated. While homeowners do not pay for services, family members are asked to welcome the volunteers and work alongside them if possible. Our work is done with families and neighborhoods, not for them.

If you need assistance, you may either apply online below through our form or click on the following link and print our application form and mail it back to us.
