Home Program

The HOME Program, established under Title II (Home Investment Partnerships Act) of the National Affordable Housing Act, represents an affirmation of the Federal government's commitment to providing decent, safe, and affordable housing for all Americans and to alleviate the problems of severe rent burdens, homelessness, and deteriorating housing nationwide.

Through this federal program administered by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), participating jurisdictions can tailor their housing strategies to meet local needs. The funds are used to leverage state and private funding to acquire, rehabilitate, and/or construct housing units. Depending on the particular project, funding and long-term affordability goals, these activities will be carried out by non-profit developers, for-profit developers, and non-profit Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs).
