Program Summary

In September 2021, Lexington County received funding from U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the HOME Investment Partnerships Program Grant (HOME) for the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021. HOME-ARP provides funding to HOME state and local governments to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability across the Country.

 

Eligible Populations

HOME-ARP funds must be used to primarily benefit individuals or families from the following qualifying populations:

  • Experiencing homelessness (as defined in 24 CFR 91.5 “Homeless” (1) (2) or (3)
  • At risk of homelessness (as defined in 24 CFR 91.5 “At risk of homelessness”)
  • Fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking (as defined in 24 CFR 5.2003)
  • Other populations with high risk of housing instability (including highly cost-burdened low-income households, households who have moved two or more times in the last 60 days, and households living in a hotel/motel)

 

Eligible Activities

HOME-ARP funds can be used for four eligible activities:

  • Development and support of affordable housing;
  • Tenant-based rental assistance;
  • Provision of supportive services (such as housing counseling, homelessness prevention, childcare, job training, legal services, case management, moving costs, rental applications, and rent assistance); and
