HOME INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIPS PROGRAM (HOME)
The HOME Investment Partnerships Program encourages states and local Participating Jurisdictions (PJ), in collaboration with private organizations, to undertake activities and adopt policies aimed at expanding the supply of affordable housing and increasing the number of families who can be served with affordable housing. Pursuant to these objectives, Genesee County proposes to utilize *$868,520 in HOME funds.
