The Consortium, through the City of Asheville Community and Economic Development Department, was formed to distribute federal HOME Investment Partnership Act funds. These HOME funds are available to non-profit agencies and housing developers whether for profit or not. The projects that receive funding are coordinated by non profits and for profit organizations that attempt to help solve the most pressing housing needs as determined through analysis, focus meetings and public forums for the upcoming 5-year period. Applications for this year’s funds are due on Friday, February 6 at noon.
Uses of these funds include: the development of new rental or for-sale housing, rehabilitation of existing housing, down payment assistance for first time home buyers and rental assistance payments.
