The Athens-Clarke County Unified Government Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) announces the availability of approximately $2,000,000 in federal funding from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) to increase and preserve affordable housing for low-income Athens-Clarke County residents. HOME Program funds are designed to provide gap financing to non-profit and for-profit affordable housing development entities. FY25 HOME applications are accepted annually and awarded on a competitive basis. HOME funds will be available for FY25 HOME contracting (July 1, 2024) as gap financing for select eligible housing activities.
HCD will host a virtual meeting to explain how eligible nonprofit organizations and select for-profit organizations may access these federal funds to administer programs that target Athens-Clarke County housing priorities.
