2015 HOME Program

The HOME Investment Partnerships Program is designed to promote partnerships between the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), state and local governments, and those in the nonprofit and for-profit sectors who build, own, manage, finance, and support low income housing initiatives. HOME provides the flexibility needed to fund a wide range of low income housing initiatives through creative and unique housing partnerships. The HOME Program was created under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act of 1990.

How does the HOME Program work? SC Housing awards HOME funding each calendar year. Although South Carolina's HOME funding fluctuates year to year, an average of $10 million is available. All HOME funds must benefit households at 80% or below the county median income.
