2016 HOME Single Family Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA)

The Department posted the 2016 HOME Single Family Non-Development Programs NOFA in July, 2016 structured according to the following Set-Aside types:

  • General Set-Aside activities including Homeowner Rehabilitation Assistance (HRA), Homebuyer Assistance (HBA), and Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) will be funded through Competitive Application Cycle awards;
  • Contract for Deed (CFD) and Disaster Relief (DR) set-asides will be funded through the Reservation System; and
  • The Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Set-Aside will fund activities through a combination of Open Application Cycle awards and the Reservation System. Specifically, PWD HBA activities will utilize an Open Application Cycle award process where contract awards will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis for eligible applicants, and PWD HRA and TBRA activities will be funded through the Reservation System.

Selection of an applicant under the Competitive Application Cycle will result in the award of funds based on a scoring selection process, while the award of funds for set-asides under the Open Application Cycle will be a first-come, first-served model based on the application receipt date and time. There is no guarantee of award for set-asides under the Reservation System; however, funding in the Reservation System may be increased from time to time as funds become available. The total amount of funds released is further described in the table below:
