The Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) is accepting applications under the Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) cycle of the HOME Investment Partnerships Fund (HOME) for the 2022 Program Year.

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocates HOME funds to Participating Jurisdictions (PJs). The State of Nebraska receives funds as a PJ and the Department of Economic Development administers the program for the State. For the 2022 Program Year DED anticipates investing approximately $1.6 Million to eligible CHDOs for eligible housing development projects. 

HOME CHDO funds will be used to support community-based projects where the CHDO owns, sponsors and develops the affordable housing units. HOME CHDO funds are available to support housing new construction activities while also providing homebuyer assistance and organizational operating assistance.
