HOME funds provide decent, safe, and affordable housing to low and moderate-income households while alleviating the problems of excessive rent burdens, homelessness, and deteriorating housing stock. HOME funds can fund a broad range of activities, including new construction, rehabilitation/reconstruction, assistance to homebuyers, and tenant-based rental assistance. Eligible entities include Community Housing Development Organizations, developers, owners, and sponsors. This program requires matching funds.

During the 2020-21 funding year, the Community Development Advisory Committee recommended funding for a total of $641,015 in HOME funds to a variety of housing projects.  

A combined funding application will be available for local non-profit agencies interested in applying for programs or projects that will help residents with housing in November 2020.
