Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program

The HOME Program is designed to provide affordable housing to income-eligible families. The city aquires houses and either rehabilitates them or demolishes them and builds new. The homes are then sold to income-eligible families. The city also contracts with Habitat for Humanity to construct new homes and sell them to income-eligible families.
