The HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) is a federal entitlement program, which was established by the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990. As a HOME participating jurisdiction, the Metropolitan Government receives an annual allocation of funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The primary objective of HOME is to expand the supply of decent, safe and affordable housing for low- and moderate-income families. HOME funds for homeownership projects must be used to benefit persons who earn less than 80% of the area median income for Nashville and Davidson County (AMI), while rental projects must benefit persons who earn less than 60% AMI. Recipients of HOME subsidies must agree to maintain affordability for a specified period of time based on the amount of subsidy received.
