Housing Assistance Programs

SHIP Purchase Assistance Program

Currently accepting applications. The purpose of the Program is to assist eligible first-time home buyers with a 0% interest, deferred payment loan to be applied toward down payment and closing costs for the purchase of eligible owner-occupied housing, and rehabilitation costs for minor improvements to the property after closing. The maximum award amount is based on need, not to exceed income category limits as included in the application. Available funding is very limited, and state set-aside requirements apply. New applicants may be placed on a waiting list.
