Goals & Programs
The goals of the Housing Division are to develop viable urban communities by providing decent, affordable housing as a suitable living environment, and to expand economic opportunities, principally to persons of low- and moderate-income. Funding is provided through federal and state grants.
To achieve our goals, the following programs have been developed:

This SHIP program provides a maximum of $5,000 per single-family home in assistance to eligible Titusville homeowners to address immediate life and/or health safety hazards. Assistance is in the form of a grant with no repayment.
- First-Time Homebuyer Program provides financial assistance to low-income homebuyers for down payment or closing costs.
- Foreclosure Prevention Program
- Substantial Rehabilitation of single-family owner-occupied homes
This HOME and SHIP program provides a maximum of $60,000, which includes construction and soft costs, per single-family home in assistance to eligible Titusville homeowners to address code violations and substandard living conditions. Assistance is in the form of a Deferred Payment Loan (DPL) over a 5, 10, or 15 year period.
