The Housing Development Division is responsible for managing the HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) Program, authorized under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act, as amended. Each year HUD allocates approximately $2 billion in HOME funding.
Program funds are allocated to units of general local government, such as Prince George’s County, using a needs-based formula. HUD informs eligible jurisdictions of their annual entitlement allocation. Participating Jurisdictions (PJs), similar to Prince George’s County, must have a current, approved Consolidated Plan that defines housing needs and anticipated performance outcomes, as well as an approved Annual Action Plan that describes how the County plans to spend its HOME funds in any given year.
