Mission Statement

The State Housing Initiative Program (SHIP) is a grant from the State to provide down payment assistance, loan fees and repair costs to bring a house up to codes for qualified home buyers in Okeechobee County.

In order to qualify for this program, residents must meet the very low, low and moderate income guide-lines established by SHIP.

Contact Ty Hancock for more information.
