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.
Tribal webinar recording and presentation
In the spirit of Assembly Bill 1010, the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) hosted a Listening Session on January 13, 2021 for tribal governments that may be interested in applying for HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funding.
In addition to providing information on funding opportunities, the Listening Session allowed HCD staff to learn about the needs and issues tribal governments are facing, tribal interest in HOME funding, and potential barriers to participation. The listening session will inform changes to the upcoming HOME NOFA.
The HCD HOME team will use the feedback received while developing the upcoming NOFA and additional tribal engagements.
View the Listening Session PowerPoint presentation and recording (under training and technical assistance).
As requested at the listening session, a crosswalk comparison of eligible applicant types and Frequently Asked Questions memo will be posted to the HOME webpage.
