Technical Assistance For Self-Help Housing Program

Provides grants to eligible entities to finance programs of technical and supervisory assistance for the development of mutual self-help housing.

Mutual Self-Help Housing is a construction method by which participants organized in groups of 6-10 families and /or individuals, utilize their own labor to reduce the total construction costs of their homes.  Construction work is completed on homes by an exchange of labor with one another.  Financing for the materials and skilled labor which needs to be hired is generally provided through the agency's Direct Homeownership Loan program.

 

Eligibility:

  • Eligible applicants are public bodies and public or private non-profit corporations.

 

Loan Terms and Conditions:

  • The applicant must show that self-help housing is needed in the area and that services and equipment to be paid for with grant funds cannot be financed through other sources.

 

  • The grant period will generally not exceed 24 months.
