Supplemental Home Loan Program

Supplemental Home Loan Program

The Supplemental Home Loan Program, or SHLP, was established to provide below-market-rate secondary financing to assist eligible faculty members and members of senior management in the acquisition of a principal place of residence.

UC Davis SHLP loans may only be used in conjunction with the University’s Mortgage Origination Program (MOP) loans to reduce the cash down payment required to as low as five percent.


The eligible population for the program consists of full-time University appointees who:

  • Are eligible for participation in the MOP program
  • Are within 2 years of initial appointment start date
  • Do not make over $100k annually and did not receive a Faculty Recruitment Allowance
  • For additional restrictions or eligibility questions, contact the program administrator

Note: Program participation is subject to the availability of campus funding.
