What is HOME?

HOME Investment Partnerships Program is the largest federal block grant to state and local governments designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low income households. Each year, HUD allocates approximately $2 billion among the states and hundreds of localities nationwide. The program was designed to reinforce several important values and principles of community development.

HOME's Purpose

  • HOME’s flexibility empowers people and communities to design and implement strategies tailored to their own needs and priorities.
  • HOME’s emphasis on consolidated planning expands and strengthens partnerships among all levels of government and the private sector in the development of affordable housing.
  • HOME’s technical assistance activities are set-aside for qualified community-based nonprofit housing groups which builds the capacity of these partners.
  • HOME’s requirement that participating jurisdictions match 25 cents of every dollar in program funds mobilizes community resources in support of affordable housing.
