The Housing and Community Development Services Division administers the HOME Investment Partnership Funds, which are entitlement monies received by Arapahoe County through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These funds are in turn distributed to community organizations for projects that provide decent housing, strengthening the ability of local governments and non-profits to provide housing in Arapahoe County.
HOME funds may be used to:
Acquire, maintain and create affordable housing for low to moderate-income individuals in the county
Assist with down payments and closing costs for first-time home buyers
Rehabilitate housing in Arapahoe County
Arapahoe County is strongly committed to affirmatively furthering fair housing through projects funded by HOME funds.
HOME projects require a 25 percent funding match from sub-grantees. Each project must meet the following guidelines:
The HCD Division accepts applications from community organizations throughout the year. The division makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners for projects to receive HOME funds. The Board of County Commissioners votes to approve the projects.
