HOME Investment Partnerships Program The National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 created the Home Investments Partnership (HOME) Program. This federal program is designed to strengthen public-private partnerships and to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing for very low income and low-income families. The Urban County Program receives an annual federal entitlement of HOME funds to implement the Act locally.
HOME funds are used to achieve the following objectives: 1. To provide decent affordable housing to lower-income households. 2. To expand the capacity of non-profit housing providers. 3. To strengthen the ability of state and local governments to provide housing. 4. To leverage private sector participation.
