State Housing Initiatives Partnership
Housing RehabState Housing Initiative Partnership (SHIP) funds will be made available to eligible homeowners living in the unincorporated areas of Leon County in need of rehabilitation of their home via deferred payment, forgivable, noninterest-bearing loans.  Individual homeowner applicants will be selected based on compliance with all eligibility requirements of the most appropriate programs which include:

  • Emergency Home Repairs most often include: damaged roofing that is leaking, damaged windows causing exposure to the elements, electrical, plumbing or septic problems that could cause damage to the home or to remediate an immediate health hazard to the occupants.

Mobile Home Emergency Repairs

The Mobile Home Emergency Repair Program, funded by the Housing Finance Authority of Leon County, primarily assists low-income Leon County (including inside City of Tallahassee limits) mobile homeowner-occupants that need repairs related to immediate health hazards and/or to eliminate a developing threat to the dwelling or its infrastructure that needs to be mitigated immediately.  Typically, projects are funded as grant assistance however more costly repairs may require a deferred payment, forgivable, noninterest-bearing loan.

NOTE: Mobile Home owners must also own the property on which the home rests.
