The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocates Home Investment Partnerships Act Program (HOME) funds by formula to eligible state and local governments, including the City of Inglewood to strengthen public-private partnerships to provide more affordable housing.
Allocation of Funds
15% of HOME funds must be allocated to a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). The City utilizes the remaining 85% of HOME funds to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing to very-low to moderate-income persons. This is accomplished through implementation of housing programs and projects that provide assistance in the form of grants and deferred loans.
