The Department of Housing and Urban Development announces funding for national and regional non-profit organizations and consortia 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. Through the Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP), grant funds are available for 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. Successful applicants must leverage other public and private funds to pay for the construction or rehabilitation costs of each SHOP unit.

The SHOP units must be sold to homebuyers at prices below the prevailing market price. Homebuyers must be low-income and must contribute a significant amount of sweat equity towards the development of the SHOP units. Reasonable accommodations must be permitted for individuals with disabilities in order for such individuals to meet hourly requirements. A homebuyer’s sweat equity contribution cannot be mortgaged or otherwise restricted upon future sale of the SHOP unit.

Volunteer labor is also required.

SHOP Grantees may award SHOP grant funds to local non-profit affiliate organizations to carry out the Grantee’s SHOP program. These affiliated organizations must be located within the Grantee’s service area.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts begin at $450,000.

Eligibility: Only national and regional non-profit organizations and consortia with experience facilitating innovative homeownership opportunities through the provision of self-help homeownership housing programs are eligible to apply.

Due Date: November 12, 2018
