Contractor Application

Requirements / About Rock the Block


Habitat for Humanity Peninsula & Greater Williamsburg is a nonprofit organization which builds, renovates and repairs houses for local families in need.


Rock the Block (RTB) is a matching grant program, which assists homeowners, renters and landlords with residences in Hampton, VA to make exterior improvements to the outside of their homes for minimal cost. All Rock the Block projects will be exterior/outside work and must be visible from the street/curb (e.g., no grant funding available for work performed inside a backyard fence.)

  • Habitat will pay up to $20,000 maximum per house for work performed.
  • Projects will only be performed in the Fordham neighborhood for short-term curb appeal projects that can be completed within 6 months.
  • Rock the Block is a hand up, not a hand out! While Habitat will be reimbursing the contractor, every resident will pay a small portion towards the work to Habitat
    o Homeowner match required: 10%; Renter/Investor match required: 50%
  • Rock the Block grant money is available to all single-family and duplex residential property owners and renters, regardless of income. Renters must have written permission from their landlord submitted with the application.
