HOME Program

Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME)
The HOME Program was created under Title II of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990. The HOME Program objective is to:
  • Provide decent affordable housing to lower-income households
  • Expand the capacity of non-profit housing providers
  • Strengthen the ability of State and local government to provide housing
  • Leverage private-sector participation
Eligible activities broadly include:
  • Housing rehabilitation
  • Homebuyer assistance
  • Rental housing assistance
  • Tenant-based rental assistance
In addition, the city must reserve at least 15% of their HOME allocations to fund housing to be owned, developed, or sponsored by experienced, community-driven nonprofit groups designated as Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs).

If your organization is interested in becoming a CHDO, please complete the CHDO application and submit to the Community Development Department. CHDOs certified by the City of Anaheim are not automatically guaranteed HOME Program funds. CHDOs must compete with other eligible CHDOs requesting HOME funds for proposed projects.
