The Thomas Jefferson Area HOME Consortium, administered by the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC), receives the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) grant through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As a recipient of this funding, TJPDC, in partnership with the City of Charlottesville as the Consortium’s lead entity, develops a Consolidated Plan every five years. The TJPDC will receive 15% of the funding for planning and administrative costs. The remaining funding is split evenly amongst the six localities that comprise the Consortium: Albemarle, Charlottesville, Fluvanna, Greene, Nelson, and Louisa.
The draft of the new Consolidated Plan, which will span Program Years 2023-2027 (July 1, 2023 – June 31st 2028), is available for your review.
The amount of funding will be determined each year by HUD. Over the past five years, HUD has awarded a total of over $3,000,000 to the Consortium. In the past five years, this funding has been used to develop affordable rental housing, housing for low-income homebuyers, assistance to homebuyers, and home rehabilitation.
Eligible activities that may be undertaken with HOME funds include:
- Development and administration of affordable rental housing
- Development of affordable housing for low-income homebuyers
- Rental assistance and down payment assistance for low-income residents
- Home rehabilitation and repairs for low-income homeowners
