Since 1992, the Housing Development Fund has been responsible for the administration of the HOME Program.  The primary objective of the program is to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing, primarily rental housing; to strengthen the abilities of state and local governments to provide housing; to ensure that federal housing services, financing, and other investments are provided to state and local governments in a coordinated, supportive fashion; to expand the capacity of nonprofit community-based housing development organizations; and to leverage private sector participation in financing affordable housing.

In 2020, the Fund committed $6,259,900 of HOME funds to nine affordable housing multifamily residential rental projects.  These nine projects contain 390 total units, and 57 of these units are HOME assisted.

For more information on the HOME Program, please contact Cathy Colby .
