Affordable Housing Assistance

Through the Housing Opportunity Program, REALTORS® help identify, develop, advocate and promote business opportunities, programs, products and resources to expand housing availability for rental and ownership. Lack of affordable housing impacts home buyers and renters as well as rental property owners and developers.

The nation’s housing opportunity crisis is long-standing and fed by an area’s economic, demographic and regulatory characteristics. SDR members understand it’s an issue that won’t go away on its own and are committed to helping create affordable housing for first-time purchasers, low-income families, minorities, seniors and disabled individuals. Without reasonable housing opportunities families are stressed to the breaking point, neighborhoods decline, jobs go unfilled and the quality of life suffers for all of us.

If your family is in need of affordable housing assistance, please contact one of the many institutions working together to improve the housing situation in South Dakota:
