  • If you are interested in applying, you must first sign your name to our waiting list. Our office is located in Suite E of 925 North Temple Avenue in Starke, Florida. You will be contacted to let you know when funds become available.
  • Purchase Assistance funds can be used for the down payment and closing costs associated with the purchase of a home. You must complete our homeownership classes and be pre-approved with your first mortgage lender before your SHIP application will be approved.
  • Repair Assistance funds can be used for home repairs related to health, safety, and sanitation.
