United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Community Planning and Development


Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #164531

Grant Description

Grants to qualified USA national and regional nonprofits and consortia to help low income individuals become homeowners. Grantees provide funding for land acquisition, infrastructure improvement (up to $15,000), planning, and administration costs, and the homebuyer provides significant sweat equity towards construction or rehabilitation of his/her home.

Grantees must use a major portion of the funds in at least two States.

Specifically, funds will be provided to facilitate and encourage innovative homeownership opportunities on a national and geographically-diverse basis. The program supports self-help housing programs that require a significant amount of sweat equity by the homebuyer toward the construction or rehabilitation of his or her home. Volunteer labor is also required.

Eligible applicants for SHOP funding include national and regional non-profit organizations and consortia with experience facilitating homeownership opportunities on a national, geographically-diverse basis through the provision of self-help homeownership housing programs. Applicants must propose to use a significant amount of SHOP grant funds in at least two states and 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. Individuals are not eligible to apply for SHOP grant funds.

SHOP grant funds must be used for land acquisition, infrastructure improvements, and for reasonable and necessary planning and administration costs (not to exceed 20 percent) with the maximum average SHOP investment for land acquisition and infrastructure not exceeding $15,000 per SHOP unit. The construction or rehabilitation costs of each SHOP unit must be funded with other leveraged public and private funds. SHOP units must be decent, safe, and sanitary non-luxury dwellings that comply with state and local codes, ordinances, and zoning requirements, and with all other SHOP requirements, including but not limited to, the requirements for energy-efficiency, water conservation and accessibility. The SHOP units must be sold to homebuyers at prices below the prevailing market price.
