TJPDC administers the Charlottesville HOME Consortium, the first regional HOME Investment Partnership Consortium in the Commonwealth. This program provides annual entitlement funding through HUD for housing rehabilitation, down-payment assistance or new construction for qualifying households in the region. The TJPDC works with the City of Charlottesville to make required submissions to HUD:

The Consortium was established in 1993 through a Cooperation Agreement among our six localities: the Counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Nelson, and the City of Charlottesville. We are an entitlement Consortium for federal HOME funds to assist low income households (with annual income equal or less than 80% of Area Median Income) with their housing needs. The funding amount from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) varies year to year based on Congressional allocation. Funds are distributed locally as follows:

  • 10% for administration and planning
  • 15% to a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) for development of new affordable units through construction or acquisition and rehabilitation
  • The remaining 75% is split evenly between the six localities

Each locality provides housing assistance through their designated sub-recipient. These organizations are experienced in their respective housing programs, have the endorsement of each local government and have boards comprised of local citizens. The locality-designated sub-recipients are:
