Florida Housing administers the State Housing
Initiatives Partnership program (SHIP), which provides funds to local
governments as an incentive to create partnerships that produce and preserve
affordable homeownership and multifamily housing. The program was designed to
serve very low, low and moderate income families. Depending on your
income, you could be eligible for home repair or replacement, down payment
assistance, rental housing assistance and other affordable housing
assistance. To find out if you qualify, contact the local SHIP administrator in your county.
