The HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) is a federal program that provides funds to low- and moderate-income families for:
- First-time homebuyer assistance
- Rental housing development
- Tenant based rental assistance
The cities of Kennewick, Pasco and Richland, as contiguous units of general government, were authorized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD) to form a consortium beginning in fiscal year 1996. The HOME consortium provides a way for the three cities to work together to address local and regional housing issues.
The City of Richland uses a portion of HOME funds to finance the city's Infill Homeownership Program
