Under CHIP's self-help program, families build their homes in groups of five to nine under the supervision of CHIP's construction staff. Each household dedicates at least 30 hours per week in labor towards building their new homes and helping each other during the process. All homes must be finished before anyone moves in. 

House plans include 3-, 4- and 5-bedroom models with no down payment, affordable monthly payments, and low fixed interest rates. USDA Rural Development provides funding assistance for these programs. Builders must make at or below 80 percent median income for the county in which they build, have decent credit, and earn enough income to make monthly payments on the loan. 

This development is made possible with the following partners: USDA Rural Development, Housing Assistance Council, and NeighborWorks America.
