Resources for Landlords & Developers

​​​Federal Funding

​The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Implemented in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at HUD. Annually, the CDBG program provides 1,209 grants to local and state governments. Agencies can only receive CDBG funding from the City by responding to a request for proposal.

The Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program replaces the Emergency Shelter Grants program. It also expands the program's eligible activities to now include homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing components. ESG funds are available for five program components: street outreach, emergency shelter, homelessness prevention, rapid re-housing assistance and data collection through the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). A request for proposals is released yearly for agencies seeking Emergency Shelter Grant funding and is found on the  Housing Services Requests for Proposals page.

The HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds a wide range of activities. Often in partnership with local nonprofit groups, the funded activities include building, buying and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or homeownership as well as providing rental assistance to low-income households. HOME is the largest federal block grant to state and local governments designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low-income households. Funding under this program can be accessed through the HOME Consortium or reply to a request for proposal. You can learn more about the HOME program from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development​.

HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) permits Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) to create flexible programs that provide assistance to individual households to help them afford the housing costs of market-rate units. These programs are known as "tenant-based rental assistance," or TBRA. You can learn more about TBRA from the HUD Exchange or check for current TBRA related RFPs. ​

The Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Program is the only federal program dedicated to the housing needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. Carolina's CARE Partnership is the City's programming partner for HOPWA funding. Organizations who wish to provide services under the HOPWA program can respond to a request for proposal on a yearly basis. Open opportunities are located on the  Housing Services Requests for Proposals page.
