State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP)

The State Housing Initiatives Partnership Program (SHIP) provides funds to local governments as an incentive to create partnerships that produce and preserve affordable homeownership and multifamily housing. The program was designed to provide very low, low, and moderate-income families with assistance to purchase a home, money to repair or replace a home, and many other types of housing assistance.

Emerald Coast Regional Council administers the SHIP program in Holmes, Jackson, Walton, and Washington Counties.
