Housing Development

HOME Program

The primary purpose of the HOME Program is to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing for very low-income and low-income households as determined per the Income Limits. U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides annual funding to participating jurisdictions (SDHDA) to develop their own programs in partnership with local governments, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector. The HOME Program provides funds to developers and/or owners for acquisition, new construction, and rehabilitation of affordable housing. The typical financing package would consist of 10% owner equity, 40% conventional loan and 50% HOME funds. The HOME funds are loaned at a 0% interest rate with variable repayment terms.

Lead Based Paint

For housing built before 1978, lead based paint could be a potential health risk. Lead is a highly toxic metal that may cause a range of health problems, especially in young children. When lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs, like the kidneys, nerves and blood. Lead may also cause behavioral problems, learning disabilities, seizures and in extreme cases, death. Some symptoms of lead poisoning may include headaches, stomachaches, nausea, tiredness and irritability. Children who are lead poisoned may show no symptoms. All HOME funded projects are required to document compliance with federal lead based paint requirements. For more information on Lead Based Paint requirements please view HUD’s Healthy Homes website.
