HOME Investment Partnerships Program CFDA# 14.239 2017 HOME Single Family Programs Amended Notice of Funding Availability as of June 1, 2017

On January 26, 2017, the Board approved the issuance of an Open Application Cycle NOFA totaling $3,000,000 from available 2015 HOME deobligated funding. Under the NOFA, $1,000,000 was set-aside for HBA activities and $2,000,000 was set-aside for TBRA activities with an application deadline of June 1, 2017. The NOFA was structured in this manner as HBA and TBRA administrators traditionally have more success in assisting low-income Texans through contract awards than through the Reservation System utilizing deobligated funds previously awarded.

As of May 18, 2017, the Department had not received any applications from HBA administrators under the Open Application Cycle NOFA, but had received applications from five TBRA administrators requesting seven awards totaling $1,662,000. To ensure that to the extent feasible HOME funding available from prior year grant funds can be committed as expeditiously as possible in an effort to meet HUD-imposed deadlines, the Department is extending the NOFA deadline to September 1, 2017, and making all remaining funding under the NOFA available on a first-come, first-served model based on Application receipt date and time and regardless of whether the Application is for an HBA or TBRA award. Funds in an amount not to exceed $100,000 in project funds per application may be awarded under this NOFA for HBA activities. Funds in an amount not to exceed $200,000 in project funds per application may be awarded under this NOFA for TBRA activities. Applicants can apply for more than one award under the Open Application Cycle, provided that the Applicant submits a separate application for each request, and the service areas are mutually exclusive and do not overlap.
