Marlon Gayle - Housing Planner:

SHIP is the State Housing Initiative Partnership program that provides funds to local governments as an incentive to create partnerships that produce and preserve affordable home ownership.  The targeted population must be considered very low to moderate income households as defined by Housing Urban Development (HUD).  Levy County SHIP funds can provide down payment/closing costs and repairs to owner-occupied homes.  The funds cannot be used for mobile or manufactured homes as well as for the owner financing or rental properties.  Eligibility into the SHIP Program is based on the household size and the gross annual household income. 

If you are a resident of Levy County and your home is in need of repairs or you are trying to purchase your first home and need financial assistance, please contact the SHIP Department.  Special emphasis on individuals who are classified as Special Needs such as those receiving SSI, SSDI, or Veteran's Disability Benefits etc. 

Don't Delay contact us today to see if you qualify for assistance. 

Office Hours: Monday - Friday 8:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
