Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) Program
Funding committed to providing decent, safe, and affordable housing to low and moderate income households while alleviating the problems of excessive rent burdens, homelessness, and deteriorating hosing stock. HOME funds can be used to assist a community’s needs and resources by funding 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.
Flexible funding that provides resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs ensuring decent affordable housing, services to the most vulnerable in our community, and to create jobs through the expansion and retention of businesses. Each CDBG project must meet one of three National Objectives - Benefit low and moderate income persons; Aid in prevention or elimination of slum or blight; or Meet other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious immediate threat to health or welfare of the community and other financial resources are not available to meet such needs. Eligible entities include:
- City departments
- Faith-based and religious organizations*
- Neighborhood based non-profit organizations*
- Other (local) governmental entities
- Public service/Human service agencies*
*A non-profit organization must have its 501©(3) or (4) IRS tax-exempt status at the time of submission of the application for funding. In the event you are unsure of project feasibility, please contact Community Development Staff for clarification and assistance.
