HOME assists cities, counties, and non-profit community housing development organizations (CHDOs) to create and retain affordable housing for lower-income renters or owners.  HOME funds are available as loans for housing rehabilitation, new construction, and acquisition and rehabilitation of single- and multifamily projects and as grants for tenant-based rental assistance.  At least 50 percent of the amount is awarded to rural applicants and 15 percent is set aside for CHDOs.  Funds are available in California communities that do not receive HOME funding directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
