The Economic Development Department administers and implements the State Housing and Community Development Department's (HCD) HOME Program and all related activities. The HOME program is consistent with the City’s Five-Year Community Development Block Grant Consolidated Plan’s goals for creating affordable housing opportunities, the City’s Housing Element and the City’s goal of improving the existing housing stock through home ownership and rehabilitation.

The mission of the HOME Program is to expand the supply of affordable housing for very low- and low-income families through a variety of eligible strategies including new construction, rehabilitation and down payment assistance.

The purpose of the HOME Program is to encourage home ownership or rehabilitation assistance to residents earning less than 80% of the area median income.

Future Grants
The City may contemplate future HOME grants for projects (construction), should an eligible proposal be submitted.
