A variety of services are offered to the citizens of Lake County. These services include:
This program assists low-income households with the down payment and closing costs. Homes purchased may be existing or new construction. The applicant must be eligible to obtain a mortgage through a participating lender. The source of funding is through State House Initiatives Partnership (SHIP).

Home repair program is designed to aid low income, owner-occupied homeowners with emergency housing problems that pose a serious and immediate threat to the health, safety or welfare of the household.
This program helps low-income households make emergency repairs to their home. The house must be owner-occupied and be the primary residence. The source of funding is through CDBG. For more information, call (352) 742-6540 or click here.

Section 8 Rental Voucher program is funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. A rental subsidy is paid directly to the landlord by the housing agency on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. Eligibility for a rental voucher is determined based on the total annual gross income and family size. Applications are only accepted when the waiting list is open.
