For families with low to moderate income, there are several housing assistance strategies to help with repair, replacement, or rehabilitation. ECRC coordinates the SHIP program for Walton County.
The following strategies are available:

The LHAP is submitted to the Florida Housing Finance Corporation for review once every three years.
