The HOME Investment Partnership Program is funded through a federal entitlement grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development which comes to the City of Longview annually. The entitlement area is comprised of the City of Longview and City of Kelso which acts as a Consortium to provide affordable housing in each city.
Public and Private Agencies
Public and private agencies may apply for grants or loans for various housing projects which they design to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing for very low income and low-income families.
- Homeowner Rehabilitation
- Rental Housing Improvement and Development
- Tenant-Based Rental Assistance for special needs categories
The Consolidated Plan is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the CPD formula block grant programs.
The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. Grantees report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).
