Assistance Considerations

Formula and Matching Requirements

Statutory Formula: Title HOME Investment Partnership Program, Chapter 24, Part 92, Subpart A-M. The formula is a system of factors established to reflect a jurisdiction's need for an increased supply of affordable housing for low and very low income families. Designed by HUD to meet statutory criteria, it is based on a jurisdiction's inadequate housing supply, substandard housing, the number of low-income households in housing units likely to be in need of rehabilitation, the cost of producing housing, poverty, and the relative fiscal incapacity of the jurisdiction to carry out housing activities without federal assistance. Each jurisdiction must make matching contributions for affordable housing throughout a fiscal year in an amount not less than 25 percent of the HOME funds drawn from the U.S. Treasury during the federal fiscal year for projects. Jurisdictions in fiscal distress receive full or partial (50 percent) relief from this requirement. Matching Requirements: Percent: 25%. This program does not have MOE requirements.

Length and Time Phasing of Assistance

Grant funds are drawn down from the U. S. Treasury based upon individual project development progress. The HOME program uses an electronic fund transfer disbursement and information system. Once drawn down, funds must be expended within fifteen days. All funds must be expended within 5 years. Method of awarding/releasing assistance: lump sum.

Post Assistance Requirements

Reports

Financial management and annual performance reports.

No cash reports are required.

No progress reports are required.

No expenditure reports are required.

No performance monitoring is required.

Audits

In accordance with the provisions of 2 CFR 200, Subpart F - Audit Requirements, non-Federal entities that expend financial assistance of $750,000 or more in Federal awards will have a single or a program-specific audit conducted for that year. Non-Federal entities that expend less than $750,000 a year in Federal awards are exempt from Federal audit requirements for that year, except as noted in 2 CFR 200.503.

Records

Records which enable HUD to determine whether the participating jurisdiction has met the requirements of the program must be kept for the most recent five year period. Those records required to document the period of affordability must be maintained for five years beyond the required period.
