The HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME)

The HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) is the largest federal block grant designed to create affordable housing for low-income households. The U.S. Department of Housing and Neighborhood Development (HUD) designed the program to reinforce the following principles of community development:

  • Empower communities to design and implement strategies that support their own needs and priorities.
  • Expand and strengthen partnerships among all levels of government and the private sector in the development of affordable housing.
  • Build capacity with partners through technical assistance activities and set-asides for qualified community-based nonprofit housing groups.
  • Mobilize community resources in support of affordable housing through the requirement that participating jurisdictions match twenty-five percent (25%) of program funds.

Through the HOME program, Salt Lake County Housing & Community Development (HCD) is releasing two Request for Applications (RFAs) for the following project types:

  • Development (approximately 1.2 million)
  • Tenant Based Rental and Rehabilitation (approximately 1.5 million)


HCD is inviting applications from Utah licensed housing developers to develop new affordable housing units within Salt Lake County. The County is seeking qualified and experienced developers to submit proposals for the design, construction, and management of housing units as part of our commitment to meeting the growing housing needs in our community.

Tenant Based Rental Assistance and Rehabilitation

 HCD is inviting applications from nonprofit organizations, Salt Lake County Consortium members, developers, sponsors, or Community Housing Development Organizations to provide assistance to households to afford housing costs or preserve existing rental or homeowner housing units.

A CHDO can apply for up to 15% of the HOME allocation (estimated at $1.8M) for development funding and can also apply for an additional 5% of the allocation for operations for development of the awarded project. A CHDO can also apply for funding out of the New Development allocation. All requests must be done in separate applications.

In summary a CHDO can apply for: 15% of allocation for development; 5% of allocation for operations of developing the project; and, additional funding through New Development.
