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.
Updated Income Limits (effective June 1, 2021) for the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) — which is currently funding the Housing for a Healthy California (HHC) Article I program — are now available.
The Income Limits are used to determine applicant eligibility, and may be used to calculate affordable housing costs for applicable housing assistance programs. Use of these Income Limits are subject to a particular program's definition of income, family, family size, effective dates, and other factors.
Updated Rent Limits (effective June 1, 2021) for HOME and HHC Article I programs are also now available.
Every HOME- and HHC Article I-assisted unit is subject to rent limits designed to help make rents affordable to low-income households.
