HOME is the largest federal block grant to state and local governments designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low to moderate-income households. HOME provides formula grants to states and localities that communities use in partnership with local nonprofit organizations and/or developers to fund a wide range of activities that help with the construction, acquisition or repair for low-income households.
