Housing Programs

Home Investment Partnership Program

The HOME Program, established under Title II (Home Investment Partnerships Act) of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990, has several purposes, including:
  • To expand the supply of decent and affordable housing for low- and very low-income Americans - such housing includes existing rental housing made affordable through tenant-based assistance.
  • To strengthen the abilities of State and local governments and nonprofit organizations to design and implement strategies for providing decent, affordable housing.
  • To provide financial and technical assistance to participating jurisdictions, including the development of model programs for developing affordable housing.
  • To create and strengthen partnerships among all levels of government and the private sector, including for-profit and nonprofit organizations, to produce and/or manage affordable housing.
Funds are allocated by formula to participating jurisdictions (PJs), the state and local governments.
