New and rehab construction
New houses are 100 percent newly constructed and meet Habitat’s quality standards and local building codes. Rehabs are restorations of houses that once met Habitat’s standards and local building codes but needed major, usually structural, work to bring them back to these standards and codes.
Incremental construction
An intervention that fully addresses one or more of the five Habitat for Humanity quality standards:
  • adequate size
  • durable construction
  • secure land tenure rights
  • access to adequate amounts of clean water
  • proper sanitation
Minor restoration, such as patching roofs or walls or replacing materials in houses that still meet Habitat’s quality standards and local building codes.
Professional services
Preconstruction advice or design services provided directly by Habitat professionals to the household, for specific construction projects.

Individuals served with better housing through the private sector as a result of a Habitat program.
