About the HOME Program

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?

Cities, counties, non-profit agencies, and public housing authorities - Applicants must be located outside a local participating jurisdiction (what's a local participating jurisdiction?)

Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDO's) - THDA provides separate funding rounds annually for nonprofit housing developers designated by the State as a CHDO, including within local participating jurisdictions

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

Target Population

Low-income and very-low-income singe family homeowners and homebuyers

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. The current total allocation for the 2018 HOME Program is $14,391,943.
