Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations to increase housing options for low-income residents. The goal of the program is to develop housing units to be sold at prices that are below the average market price. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take four weeks or longer to complete. Funding is intended to increase housing options for low-income individuals and families.

The Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP) awards grant funds to purchase home sites and develop or improve the infrastructure needed to set the stage for sweat equity and volunteer-based homeownership programs for low-income persons and families.

SHOP funds must be used for eligible expenses to develop decent, safe, and sanitary non-luxury housing for low-income persons and families who otherwise would not be able to afford to become homeowners. 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.

Land acquisition, infrastructure improvements, and reasonable and necessary planning and administration costs (not to exceed 20 percent) are the only eligible uses for SHOP grant funds. Applicants must propose to use a significant amount of SHOP grant funds in at least two states.
