HOME Investment Partnerships Program
The National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 created the Home Investments Partnership (HOME) Program. This federal program is designed to strengthen public-private partnerships and to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing for very low income and low-income families. The Urban County Program receives an annual federal entitlement of HOME funds to implement the Act locally.
HOME funds are used to achieve the following objectives:
1. To provide decent affordable housing to lower-income households.
2. To expand the capacity of non-profit housing providers.
3. To strengthen the ability of state and local governments to provide housing.
4. To leverage private sector participation.
