HOME Program


THDA Design and Rehabilitation Standards

The purpose of the HOME program is to promote the production, preservation, and rehabilitation of affordable single-family housing for low-income households.

Who Can Apply?

Generally cities, counties, non-profit agencies, and public housing authorities may be eligible - Applicants for the Urban/Rural HOME Homeownership rehabilitation Grant must be located outside a local participating jurisdiction.**

Eligible applicants can vary depending on the particular HOME activity. It is important that you review the Program Description for the activity and round that you are interested in to determine if your organization is eligible.

Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDO's) - THDA provides separate funding rounds annually for nonprofit housing developers designated by the State as a CHDO.

Private citizens - Interested individuals should contact their local government authorities (city, county, etc.) to see if there are any HOME-funded projects available in their area.

**Local participating jurisdictions (Local PJs) are those local governments in Tennessee that receive HOME funds directly from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Local PJs are Clarksville, Chattanooga, Jackson, Knoxville, Memphis, Nashville-Davidson County, Knox County, Shelby County, and the Northeast Tennessee/Virginia Consortium (the cities of Bristol, Kingsport, Johnson City, Bluff City, Sullivan County, and Washington County, excluding the Town of Jonesborough). Non-profit organizations located in a local participating jurisdiction may apply for projects located outside the local participating jurisdictions.

What Type of Funds are Available?

HOME is a federally funded program. Awards are made annually to THDA by the federal government. Those funds are then distributed by THDA to grantees within the State of Tennessee based upon a rigorous competitive application and scoring process.
