Special Housing Opportunities Program

Maryland's Department of Housing and Community Development sponsors the Special Housing Opportunities Program (SHOP).

These loans can finance the acquisition, rehabilitation or new construction of houses. The eligible recipients may also refinance existing private mortgages.

USDA Rural Development

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has a Rural Development program offering the opportunity for home ownership across the nation in rural areas. Through the Rural Housing Service (RHS), financing is available to the elderly, disabled or low-income families who live within multi-unit housing buildings, so the families can receive payment to make rent.
