Housing Programs

The Community Development Division / Housing Program administers the HOME program. For this source of funds, the list of potentially eligible activities related to housing development and rehabilitation is long and includes:

  • Rehabilitation of owner and rental units
  • Acquisition of real property for housing
  • Construction of new units for sale or rent
  • Acquisition of land for new construction
  • Reconstruction of residential units
  • Development costs/fees
  • Transitional housing, single room occupancy housing and group homes
  • Demolition of substandard structures where new units will be built

Eligible properties include those that are or will be owner-occupied, rental units, transition housing for people who are homeless, and units that meet needs of those who are classified as special users, people with a developmental disability, mental illness or other condition which restricts their ability to function independently.
