The HOME Program was created under the Cranston-Gonzales National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 and is to be implemented by the United States Department of Urban Development (HUD). The goal of the HOME Program is to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing units.
Under the HOME Program, Genesee County is awarded funding to be utilized only for housing activities. These activities may include new housing construction, housing rehabilitation, reconstruction, site improvements, acquisition of property/vacant land, demolition, relocation costs, and project related soft costs. Individuals, for-profit entities, and non-profits can all participate in the HOME Program.
Currently, the HOME Program is providing assistance to several housing activities throughout the county. Some of these include the continued development of senior citizen housing, housing for persons with special needs, and construction of single-family housing.

The Down Payment Assistance (DPA) program is supported by HOME funds. This program works in partnership with participating financial institutions to provide down payment and closing cost assistance to eligible low and moderate income homebuyers in the out-county area.
