Each year, the TJPDC is allocated funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for housing projects carried out through the Charlottesville HOME Consortium. The Consortium was established in 1993 through TJPDC work with all six localities in the region. By coming together our region is entitled to funds that no locality would receive on their own.

From 1993 through 2015, HOME Consortium funds have exceeded $18 million. For the coming year, July 1, 2016 to June 3, 2017, the region will receive $465,662. The Action Plan for 16-17 must be submitted to HUD by May 15, 2016 to indicate the planned use of HOME funds in the Thomas Jefferson Planning District (City of Charlottesville and counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson) and for federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding of $371,309 in the City of Charlottesville.

Click to view the Draft Action Plan. Comments on the plan can be sent to bcampbell@tjpdc.org or howardti@charlottesville.org through April 22, 2016. A public hearing will be held on April 7, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in TJPDC’s Water Street Center, and at the Charlottesville City Council meeting on May 2 at 7:00 p.m.
