Each year, Orange County receives funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program. The County creates an annual plan, the Annual Action Plan, that lays out how HOME funds will be spent in the upcoming program year to address the County’s affordable housing needs and priorities.
For Fiscal Year 2023-2024, Orange County proposes funding the following projects carried out by two local nonprofit organizations:
- CASA: Development of 22 affordable units for low-income renters. $512,000 was requested and $446,489 was awarded; Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) set aside $32,212.
- PeeWee Homes: Development of 3 affordable tiny homes for renters exiting homelessness. $50,000 was requested and $50,000 was awarded; Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) set aside $32,212.
