What is HOME?

What is HOME?

Created by the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 (NAHA), HOME is the largest Federal block grant available to communities to create affordable housing. The intent of the HOME Program is to:

  • Increase the supply of decent, affordable housing to low- and very low-income households;
  • Expand the capacity of nonprofit housing providers;
  • Strengthen the ability of state and local governments to provide housing; and
  • Leverage private sector participation.

Every year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) determines the amount of HOME funds that states and local governments—also known as Participating Jurisdictions (PJs)—are eligible to receive using a formula designed to reflect relative housing need. After money has been set aside for America’s insular areasi and for nationwide HUD technical assistance, the remaining funds are divided between states (40 percent) and units of general local government (60 percent).

The HOME Program regulations are found at 24 CFR Part 92. The Final Rule was published on September 16, 1996 and was amended on March 30, 2004 to include ADDI. The HOME regulations may be found on HUD’s Office of Affordable Housing Programs website at: https://www.hud.gov/offices/cpd/affordablehousing/ lawsandregs/regs/home/index.cfm
