Competitive Bid Selection Process
Broward County, through the administration of the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) Program*, will make funds available through a separate competitive bid process.

The SHIP Rental/New Construction Program was created to expand affordable housing opportunities for renters by constructing new, multi-family rental units to be occupied by income eligible families. Rental/New Construction will accompany upgraded water supply systems, improved drainage, new road pavement, swales, sodding, landscaping, and neighborhood signage. Assistance will be in the form of a 30-year deferred payment loan.
Units are to be occupied by income eligible families upon completion.
(*) The purpose of the SHIP Program is to assist in meeting specific housing needs of very-low, low and moderate income households, to expand the production and preservation of affordable housing.
