Florida Statutes 420.907 - State Housing Initiative Partnership Act
Manatee County has been a recipient of State Housing Initiative Partnership (SHIP) program funding since 1992.
Through the SHIP program, the County is able to offer funding assistance to income eligible households in the purchase of a new or existing home or in the repair or replacement of a home for existing homeowners. SHIP funding can also be used to assist Affordable Housing Developers in the development of rental or owner-occupied housing for rent or sale to Manatee County residents.
Every three (3) years, local jurisdictions are required to submit a three (3) year Local Housing Assistance Plan (LHAP) for approval to the State in order to receive their local distribution of SHIP funding on an annual basis.
Manatee County is required to submit a new three (3) year LHAP by May 2, 2015, in order to receive its annual allocation by July 1, 2015.
