The home team: supporting affordable homeownership

A look inside the State Farm® partnership with Habitat for Humanity and their efforts to advocate for better, more affordable housing.

State Farm has a commitment to building safer, stronger and better-educated communities — and that led them to a partnership with Habitat for Humanity more than 12 years ago.

Here's a closer look at how this successful partnership has created paths to homeownership opportunities, provided disaster relief funds to the communities that need it most and even created the opportunity for students to attend the annual Habitat on the Hill legislative conference in Washington, DC.

More than 29 million people have built or improved the place they call home with the help of Habitat for Humanity, and 800,000 youth have engaged in Habitat organizations with help from State Farm. That support extended to over 300 local Habitat organizations in 2019, and marks an $11 million investment in Habitat for Humanity over the past 13 years.

This partnership is especially evident on college campuses: 18 Habitat for Humanity campus chapters were awarded State Farm matching grants in 2018 — and in 2019, $164,000 in State Farm grants were awarded to campus chapters and matched by $202,197 in local funds.
