The HOME program is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in partnership with local governments. The City of Wichita Falls as a Participating Jurisdiction (PJ) is required to set aside a minimum of 15% of their HOME allocation for housing development activities in which qualified CHDO's are the owners, developers, and/or sponsors of affordable housing.
