PREPARATION OF HOME INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIPS PROGRAM (HOME) – AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN (ARP) ACT OF 2021 ALLOCATION PLAN
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program grant has allocated $1,435,021 of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021 funds to Cumberland County to perform eligible activities that must primarily benefit qualifying individuals and families who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or in other vulnerable populations.
Prior to using the HOME-ARP funds, Cumberland County is required to prepare an allocation plan to outline how the funds will be used to address the needs of Qualifying Populations. To begin preparing the allocation plan, Cumberland County must consult with housing and service providers whose clientele include the Qualifying Populations to identify unmet needs and gaps in housing and service delivery systems. Feedback provided by the service providers and citizens will aide Cumberland County in determining how to best use the HOME-ARP funds to meet the needs of the Qualifying Populations.
During the development of the HOME-ARP allocation plan, Cumberland County will hold a public hearing for public review and comment at the Board of Commissioners meeting held on January 17, 2023, at 6:45 p.m. The draft copy of the allocation plan will be made available for public review and comment from January 13, 2023 – January 27, 2023 (5:00 p.m.).
