The HOME Program was created under Title II of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990. The HOME Program objective is to:

  • Provide decent affordable housing to lower-income households
  • Expand the capacity of non-profit housing providers
  • Strengthen the ability of State and local government to provide housing
  • Leverage private-sector participation

City activities may include:

  • Rental housing assistance
  • Housing Rehabilitation
  • Tenant-based rental assistance
  • Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs)

In addition, the city must reserve at least 15% of their HOME allocations to fund housing to be owned, developed, or sponsored by experienced, community-driven nonprofit groups designated as Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs).

If your organization is interested in becoming a CHDO, please complete the CHDO application and submit to the Community Development Department. CHDOs certified by the City of Baldwin Park are not automatically guaranteed HOME Program funds.
