HOME Program

Overview

The HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program was established under Title II of the National Affordable Housing Act. The purpose of HOME funding is:

To expand the supply of decent, affordable housing and nonprofit housing providers; and

To strengthen the ability of state and local governments to provide housing by public-private partnerships

The HOME program is administered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Osceola County, as a HOME Consortium participating jurisdiction (PJ) beginning October 1, 2015, receives funds under the HOME Program.  

The Program provides formula grants - often in partnership with local nonprofit groups - to fund a wide range of activities including building, buying, and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or homeownership or providing direct rental assistance to low-income people. HOME is the largest Federal block grant to state and local governments designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low-income households.
