Self-Help Programs

The mutual self-help housing loan program is used primarily to help very low and low-income households construct their own homes. The program is targeted to families who are unable to buy clean, safe housing through conventional methods. Families participating in a mutual self-help project perform approximately 65 percent of the construction labor on each other's homes under qualified supervision. The savings from the reduction in labor costs allows otherwise ineligible families to own their homes.

Applicants must have very low or low income. Very low income is defined as below 50 percent of the area median income (AMI); low income is between 50 and 80 percent AMI. Families must be able to afford the mortgage payments including principal, interest, taxes and insurance (PITI). The amount of subsidy is determined by family income, with loan terms from 33 to 38 years, and rates as low as 1 percent. Income calculations are performed according to the mortgage company guidelines and will vary according to family income. - In the mutual self-help housing program, houses must be modest in size, design, and cost.

Building Quality Into Affordable Housing

It is important to mention that Homes In Partnership, Inc. (HIP) is dedicated to the continued advancement of utilizing the most cost-effective and safest building standards. All homes are built using the latest construction methods and materials, which comply with stringent hurricane guidelines. The homes are also designed energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly for homeowners. By building "green", HIP is able to pass along many additional benefits to homeownership. Through a cooperative effort with Progress Energy, HIP is committed to building Energy Star homes. Energy Star homes are more energy-efficient, creating immediate and long-term savings for homeowners.

HIP continues to expand its knowledge of energy-efficient, healthy home building techniques in order to pass that knowledge on. Homeowners are currently educated about post-purchase maintenance for their homes, and HIP is in the process of incorporating education about green building features as well. This will enable families to maintain their healthy, energy-efficient homes long after the construction process has been completed.
