Grants to California nonprofit community organizations in eligible regions for housing projects that benefit low-income households. Funding is intended for a range of projects, including rental unit development, land acquisition, housing rehabilitation, and manufactured housing in the city of Davis. The primary beneficiaries of HOME funded projects are low-income people and households at 60% of the median income. At least 90% of the activities of a project must serve this population.

The federally funded HOME Program limits the amount of funds that can be spent in two categories: 1) At least 15% of HOME funds must be awarded to a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO); and 2) Administration (and other related activities) cannot exceed 10% of the total grant.

Eligible Activities: 

  1. HOME funds may be used by a participating jurisdiction to provide incentives to develop and support affordable rental housing and homeownership affordability through the acquisition (including assistance to homebuyers), new construction, reconstruction, or rehabilitation of non-luxury housing with suitable amenities, including real property acquisition, site improvements, conversion, demolition, and other expenses, including financing costs, relocation expenses of any displaced persons, families, businesses, or organizations; to provide tenant-based rental assistance, including security deposits; to provide payment of reasonable administrative and planning costs; and to provide for the payment of operating expenses of community housing development organizations. The housing must be permanent or transitional housing. 
  2. Acquisition of vacant land or demolition must be undertaken only with respect to a particular housing project intended to provide affordable housing.
  3. Conversion of an existing structure to affordable housing is rehabilitation, unless the conversion entails adding one or more units beyond the existing walls, in which case, the project is new construction for purposes of this part.
  4. Manufactured housing. HOME funds may be used to purchase and/or rehabilitate a manufactured housing unit, or purchase the land upon which a manufactured housing unit is located. Except for existing, owner-occupied manufactured housing that is rehabilitated with HOME funds, the manufactured housing unit must, at the time of project completion, be connected to permanent utility hook-ups and be located on land that is owned by the manufactured housing unit owner or land for which the manufactured housing owner has a lease for a period at least equal to the applicable period of affordability.
