Lee County supports Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties through the State Housing Initiatives Partnership program and the HOME Down Payment Assistance Program.

State Housing Initiatives Partnership Program

The State Housing Initiatives Partnership program (SHIP)  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.

HOME Down Payment Assistance Program

The amount of assistance is 10% of the purchase price or appraised value, not to exceed $10,000.  Funds are to be used toward down payment and/or closing costs.
