Home repair and maintenance for Native Americans

  1. 1. PUEBLO de COCHITI HOUSING AUTHORITY “ELDERS NO COST MAINTENANCE PROGRAM” Housing Assistance Council’s Rural Seniors Program 0 April 2014 – Phoenix, AZ
  2. 2. The Elder’s No Cost Maintenance Program was developed to address the minor repair needs of the elders 62+ in Cochiti Pueblo, NM. Due to the rural area of the community, the nearest cities are 50 miles or more away , the elders must rely on family members or relatives to do minor home repair, in most cases it does not get done.
  3. 3. Due to the distance, calling a service or contractor is cost prohibitive for those on a fixed income. Trip charges range from $75 to $125 and usually take two trips along with the cost of materials/parts and labor. The PdCHA has eased the burden by using its own workforce to complete the repairs or minor renovation
  4. 4. Work is complete with the PdCHA Force Account crew of 7 (2-Maint. Technicians and 4- Laborers). The crew has over 45 years of experience working in the residential construction and repair field. Usage of our work crews eases the burden of overhead and profit cost by a contractor. We are local and can respond quickly if something fails. Our cost charged to the program includes: our direct cost for labor, materials and supplies and mileage only.
