Grants are available to USA public and private non-profit organizations and consortia to help low-income individuals qualify for home-ownership opportunities where eligible buyers provide sweat equity and volunteer labor is used. Funds can be used to purchase land, infrastructure improvements, and for necessary planning, administration and management expenses, and must be leveraged with funds from other sources. Applicants must use a significant amount of the funds in at least two states.

Housing units must be decent, safe, and sanitary non-luxury dwellings that comply with state and local codes, ordinances, and zoning requirements, and with the SHOP requirements (including requirements for energy-efficiency and water conservation). The SHOP units must be sold to homebuyers at prices below the prevailing market price. A homebuyer’s sweat equity contribution must not be mortgaged or otherwise restricted upon future sale of the SHOP unit. SHOP Grantees may award SHOP Grant funds to local non-profit affiliate organizations to carry out the Grantee’s SHOP program. These affiliate organizations must be located within the Grantee’s service area.
