HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) Program

HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) Program funds are awarded annually by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for development and maintenance of affordable housing for low-income households. The City of Everett is part of an Interlocal Agreement with Snohomish County to form a consortium to receive HOME funds annually. Snohomish County's Office of Housing, Homelessness, and Community Development (OHHCD) administers this funding on behalf of the Snohomish County HOME Consortium. The City of Everett's allocation of HOME funds attributes to 21% of the Consortium's HOME funds to eligible housing activities within the city. 

Each year HOME funds are prioritized based on annual needs and goals. Agencies apply for funding for the upcoming Program Year (July to June calendar) based on the annual needs identified. The projects awarded with funding, along with the supporting goals, are described in Snohomish County's Annual Action Plan and the City Council Funding Resolution.
