HOME program assistance available.

HOMEWORKS, a service offered by the National Community Development Association (NCDA), offers assistance to communities utilizing funds through the HOME program, a new and innovative federal block grant program available to expand the nation's supply of long-term affordable housing for low-income families.

Local governments interested in utilizing these funds should avail their communities of the resources of HOMEWORKS. A comprehensive service, HOMEWORKS includes a twice-monthly newsletter, a clearinghouse of information on the federal HOME Investment Partnerships Program, and access to individuals to answer your specific questions about administration of the HOME program at the local, state and federal levels.

The newsletter contains timely and authoritative information on the HOME program. It serves as a forum for analyzing and discussing successful housing partnerships as well as reporting on legislative and regulatory issues affecting the HOME program. While providing new opportunities, the HOME program also promises to be a challenging program to administer. HOMEWORKS can help you by:

[sub-section] Providing the latest information on and interpretation of federal regulations related to HOME;

[sub-section] Featuring information on training opportunities on the administration of HOME;

[sub-section] Identifying how to get critical federal documents and other information on effectively administering the HOME program;

[sub-section] Providing exclusive information on operation of the HOME program by the states, including state formula allocations, program design and program administration; and

[sub-section] Monitoring key dates and deadlines relative to HOME.

To get started, service subscribers are given a comprehensive HOME Resource guidebook which details the fundamental elements of the HOME program. The introductory price for a 12 month subsription to HOMEWORKS is $150.
