Special Housing Needs Strategy


The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners, through the 2015-2016 SHIP budget resolution, approved to allocate a portion of its State Housing Initiative Partnership (SHIP) funds for the purchase of new construction housing, the purchase of existing housing and the rehabilitation of, or additions to, existing housing used for special needs housing groups as noted in Section 420.9075(1)(a), Florida Statutes, including, but not limited to, homeless people, the elderly, migrant farm workers and persons with disabilities. The first priority of these special needs funds will be to serve persons with developmental disabilities as defined in section 393.063, Florida Statutes. This strategy funds non-homeownership housing initiatives. Special Needs housing is not restricted to geographic location, but must be located anywhere within Citrus County.
