HOME Investment Partnership Program

The HOME Investment Partnerships Program, commonly referred to as HOME, is a Federal block grant designed to help create and sustain safe, decent, and affordable housing for low-income households. The annual allocation is based on population and documented housing needs. As the designated Administrator of the Idaho’s HOME Program, IHFA awards HOME funds as gap financing to qualified Idaho housing developers to acquire, construct, or rehabilitate affordable rental housing throughout the state of Idaho.

Qualified nonprofit housing developers are awarded HOME funds as a loan to construct or rehabilitate single-family homes to be sold or rented to qualified low-income households. All HOME-assisted housing has a Period of Affordability of 5 to 20 years depending on the amount of HOME funds received and the scope of the activity (e.g. single-family/multi-family rental, new construction, rehabilitation, acquisition).
