The National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 (NAHA) implements the HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME Program). HOME Program funds are intended to strengthen public-private partnerships and to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing with primary attention to rental housing for very low- and low-income households. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocates HOME Program funds annually by formula to eligible State and local governments.

Genesee County (as a designated Participating Jurisdiction or PJ) has received an annual allocation of HOME Program funding since 1992. The Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission (GCMPC) administers the HOME Program for Genesee County outside the City of Flint. Funding allocations vary annually depending on the amount of funding appropriated by Congress for the HOME Program.
