Funds for this program are provided by the South Dakota Housing Development Authority.  There is a list of acceptable home improvement expenses as well as unacceptable uses which applicants need to review and sign prior to accepting the grant.   Applications for the HAPI grant can be downloaded and printed. Prior to the disbursal of funds, you must attend a HAPI approved home ownership education class. These classes are provided to you at no cost by HAPI. There is a forgivable mortgage that goes along with receiving this grant. It states that the grant will be forgiven at the rate of 20% per year. If you move or sell the home prior to 5 years, you will be required to pay the un-forgiven portion of the deed restriction. Unfortunately, we are unable to work with mobile homes with either grant. The funds from these grants CAN NOT be used for rental ownership or improvements.
