Grants to Texas nonprofit community housing development organizations to provide housing to low- to extremely low-income families and individuals within the state. The purpose of this program is to expand affordable housing options for those families and individuals who may otherwise reside in substandard housing.

Funds provided under this NOFA may be used for pre-development costs, acquisition, lot development, onsite infrastructure, construction, rehabilitation and down payment assistance to qualified homebuyers. Onsite infrastructure includes costs for individual service lines, approved septic installation, sidewalks, curbs and site improvements. Examples of excluded infrastructure costs are water, sewer, electrical, main or transfer lines, streets and other improvements that serve areas outside the development site.

First-lien loans made to homebuyers under this NOFA shall not subordinate if the homebuyer obtains a home equity loan during the term of the loan. Second-lien loans for downpayment assistance and/or closing costs may subordinate in the event of a refinance if the new loan amount is at least $1,000 more than the amount owed on the second-lien loan.

Each CHDO that is awarded Project funds under this NOFA may also be eligible to receive a grant for CHDO Operating Expenses, which are defined in 24 CFR §92.208 as including salaries, wages, and other employee compensation and benefits; employee education, training, and travel; rent; utilities; communication costs; taxes; insurance; and equipment, materials, and supplies. Applicants will be required to submit organizational operating budgets, audits and other financial and non-financial materials detailed in the HOME application.
