Affordable Housing Development
The Housing Division works to provide safe, affordable housing for low and moderate income residents living in York City and York County. Part of that effort is through the HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), and through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Below is information on the programs available, and you can check out our brochure for information as well.
HOME Investment Partnership (HOME)
The purpose of the HOME program is to provide safe, decent, and affordable rental housing units for low and moderate income people. The County provides assistance for the rehabilitation of existing rental units, new construction of rental units, assistance to first-time homebuyers, and tenant-based rental assistance. The County works with the Housing Authority, with non-profit and for profit developers, and the City of York, to implement these activities. The County coordinates its HOME and CDBG funded housing activities for affordable housing. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The program was developed to assure an adequate supply of standard, affordable rental housing to low-income households. York County provides funding to housing developers for the creation of new rental housing units throughout the County.
