One step closer to affordable housing
Southwestern NC HOME Consortium is one step closer to receiving annual allocation to bring more affordable housing to the region.
The Southwestern NC HOME Consortium is a group of governments coming together to receive Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds from HUD. The HOME program is a federal grant program that provides funding for decent, affordable housing for low-income households and to expand the capacity of non-profit housing providers. HOME funds can be used for new construction, rehabilitation, down payment assistance, rental assistance, site improvements, acquisition of property, relocation costs, project related soft costs, activities of Community Development Housing Organizations and program administration, planning or capacity building.
Haywood, Jackson, Macon, Swain, Clay and Graham counties participate in the Consortium. Haywood County acts as the lead entity and will be holding a public hearing at 5:30 p.m. July 19, to provide an opportunity for the public to comment on the Consolidated Plan developed to guide The Consortium activities and expenditures.
