    Housing Development


    Homes Are Possible, Inc.

    HAPI is a non-profit group of concerned citizens who are committed to empowering individuals, stabilizing families, and revitalizing neighborhoods through a variety of economic and social initiatives. The purpose is to facilitate very low, low and moderate income persons and families in securing and/or refurbishing good quality affordable housing.


    The 5th Central subdivision is just opening. All properties in this subdivision may qualify for a $10,000 or more reduction in lot cost to income qualified buyers.

    Covenants and Restrictions are in place on these lots, which may be purchased for traditional site-built homes or Governor’s Houses.

    All homes are on full basements with two car minimum attached garages. All homes built are subject to Homes Are Possible plan review and approval. No manufactured or mobile homes are allowed, per Aberdeen city code.


    We offer homebuyer education as a service to educate the public as well as a requirement for receiving the HAPI Grant. Classes are held on an as-need basis throughout the HAPI service area, when possible. We help you understand the different assistance programs available in this area. We strive to cover grey areas of home-buying and home-ownership as well as answer questions and allow time for group discussion.


    Currently HAPI has a $3,500 Down Payment/Closing Cost non-forgivable loan for Brown County. This loan is paid back to HAPI interest free at the time you sell your home, take a cash back refinance or transfer title.  Please contact HAPI for further details. Completion of HAPI’s Homebuyer Education course is required prior to closing.

    HAPI has Housing Opportunity Funds available for outside of Brown County.  These funds are in the form of a $3,500 forgivable grant. The income limits are at the HUD 80% AMI per county and household size.  Please contact HAPI for these limits. Homebuyer Education is required for these grants and must be completed prior to closing.

    Rural Development Home Financing

    HAPI is pleased to announce that we now assist you with the pre-qualification packing for USDA’s Rural Development financing. This is the first step to RD loans.

    HAPI focuses its goals based on these four principals:

    • Everyone should have an equal opportunity for a quality home.
    • If people have a chance for ownership they will perform and succeed.
    • As individuals are helped, neighborhoods will be revitalized.
    • Education about home ownership is the key to success and quality of neighborhoods is the job of the community.
