HOME Investment Partnership Program
The U.S. Housing and Urban Development allocated $379,833 for the 2017 HOME Program in Barnstable County.
The HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) is a Federal block grant to state and local governments designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low-income households. HOME funds a wide range of activities including building, buying, and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or home ownership or providing direct rental assistance to low-income people.
The Barnstable County HOME Consortium [BCHC] is comprised of 15 communities on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The 15 communities are Barnstable, Bourne, Brewster, Chatham, Dennis, Eastham, Falmouth, Harwich, Mashpee, Orleans, Provincetown, Sandwich, Truro, Wellfleet, and Yarmouth. The BCHC was formed to be a Participating Jurisdiction to receive and disburse HOME funds. In 2015, Barnstable County designated the Department of Human Services to act as the program’s lead agent, responsible to HUD for all administrative functions related to the operation of the BCHC.
As established by County ordinance in 1992, the HOME Consortium Advisory Council consists of seventeen members: one representative from each town and two at-large members.
The Barnstable County Home Consortium Advisory Council was established in 1992 in Ordinance 92-3 to advise and make recommendations to the Barnstable County Commissioners regarding the administration and funding of activities to be undertaken by the BCHC.
