Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP)

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - Community Planning and Development (CPD)


Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #164899

Grant Description

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations to increase housing options for low-income residents. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to develop housing units to be sold at prices that are below the average market price in order to increase housing options for low-income individuals and families.

The Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP) awards grant funds to eligible 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. 

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.

Applicants must propose to use a significant amount of SHOP grant funds in at least two states.

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.

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 sweat equity 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.
