Brief: Public Funds can be utilized to assist an interested group of residents to construct or redevelop property for their own habitation.

Examples:
New Horizons Self Help Homeownership, Reedley, CA
Using RHS Grant, and an RHS Loan, 8-12 families built their homes as a group. Families conducted some of the construction work themselves. Flexible zoning/design requirements allowed for adapting the structure to the parcel in an efficient use of space and to maximize usable square footage.
