Grants to California nonprofit organizations for projects that provide affordable housing to low-income individuals or families in eligible communities. Priority will be given to projects that serve underrepresented communities, receive funds from the community or other private sources, or serve clients who are very low and extremely low income. Eligible projects are those that benefit residents of the City of Davis.

The HOME Grant program provides federal funding to provide affordable housing through the development or implementation of projects such as homebuyer programs, development of rental units, tenant-based rental assistance and owner-occupied property rehabilitation. The primary beneficiaries of HOME funded projects are low income persons and households at 60% of the median income. At least 90% of the activities of a project must serve this population. 

Organizations applying for HOME grant funds receive preference if one or more of the following are met:

  • Serve clients who are very low and extremely low income (50% of median income and below.)
  • Leverage funds from the community or other private sources
  • Benefit clients who are not currently served or are under-served

The intent of HOME is:

  • To expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing, primarily rental housing.
  • To strengthen the abilities of state and local governments to provide housing.
  • To assure that federal housing services, financing and other investments are provided to state and local governments in a coordinated, supportive fashion.

Term of Contract:

The 2021-2022 HOME program year runs from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. Grantees have 24 months to enter into written agreements with developers, owners, contractors, sub-recipients, state recipients and Community Housing Development Organizations to reserve funds. Grantees have 5 years to expend funds.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The City has many options for implementing the HOME grant program. In Davis, housing and other community development activities are primarily administered through “non-profit” community groups. At least fifteen percent (15%) of the funds must be granted to a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). The CHDO must demonstrate capacity for each role (Owner, Developer or Sponsor) it intends to undertake. The Federal 2013 HOME Final Rule emphasizes that the CHDO must have paid key staff members who have housing experience appropriate to the role the CHDO undertakes. Thus, a CHDO in the role of developer must demonstrate development experience and a CHDO in the role of owner/manager must demonstrate ownership and management experience. If the CHDO lacks development experience or capacity it may be certified only as an Owner/Operator. Capacity is evaluated during the certification process as well as each time the CHDO applies for funding. The capacity requirement cannot be met through the use of volunteers or staff that is donated by the organization, including the parent organization, if applicable. CHDO’s have specific board and by-law requirements.

HOME funds may not be used to:
1. Provide project reserve accounts, except as provided in Sec. 92.206(d)(5), or operating subsidies;
2. Provide tenant-based rental assistance for the special purposes of the existing section 8 program, in accordance with section 212(d) of the Act;
3. Provide non-federal matching contributions required under any other Federal program;
4. Provide assistance authorized under section 9 of the 1937 Act (annual contributions for operation of public housing);
5. Carry out activities authorized under 24 CFR part 968 (Public Housing Modernization);
6. Provide assistance to eligible low-income housing under 24 CFR part 248 (Prepayment of Low Income Housing Mortgages);
7. Provide assistance (other than tenant-based rental assistance or assistance to a homebuyer to acquire housing previously assisted with HOME funds) to a project previously assisted with HOME funds during the period of affordability established by the participating jurisdiction in the written agreement under Sec. 92.504. However, additional HOME funds may be committed to a project up to one year after project completion (see Sec. 92.502), but the amount of HOME funds in the project may not exceed the maximum per-unit subsidy amount established under Sec. 92.250.
8. Pay for the acquisition of property owned by the participating jurisdiction, except for property acquired by the participating jurisdiction with HOME funds, or property acquired in anticipation of carrying out a HOME project; or
9. Pay for any cost that is not eligible under Sec. Sec. 92.206 through 92.209

HOME funds may not be provided to primarily religious organizations, such as churches, for any activity including secular activities. In addition, HOME funds may not be used to rehabilitate, or construct housing owned by primarily religious organizations or to assist primarily religious organizations in acquiring housing. However, HOME funds may be used by a secular entity to acquire housing from a primarily religious organization, and a primarily religious entity may transfer title to property to a wholly secular entity and the entity may participate in the HOME program in accordance with the requirements of this part. The entity may be an existing or newly established entity, which may be an entity established by the religious organization. The completed housing project must be used exclusively by the owner entity for secular purposes, available to all persons regardless of religion. In particular, there must be no religious or membership criteria for tenants of the property.
