HOME Program

Program Overview


The HOME Investment Partnerships Program is the largest federal block grant designed exclusively to create affordably housing for low-income households and was created under Title II of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990. Montana’s State allocation of HOME funds are provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Montana Department of Commerce grants these funds to help local governments respond to the need for adequate, affordable housing for low-income individuals and families.

The Montana HOME Program strives to partner with local governments and organizations to:

  • Expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing for very low-income and low-income Montanans (those at or below 80% of area median income); and
  • Mobilize and strengthening the abilities of units of local governments, public housing authorities, community housing development organizations, and other organizations to implement strategies for achieving an adequate supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing.
