Housing Development Division

The Housing Development Division administers financing programs for affordable housing, home purchasing assistance, housing repair programs, the Emergency Shelter Program and the Fair Housing Program. These programs provide housing assistance to eligible participants.

The Housing Division's activities are divided into three major components:

The federally-funded HOME Program which provides a variety of mortgage and rental assistance to low-and-moderate income families

Housing Preservation which funds repair and restoration activities

Tax-exempt bonds which utilize private investment to finance both single-family and multi-family projects

HOME Investment Partnership Program

The HOME Investment Partnership Program is a federally-funded housing program created by the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 (NAHA). The HOME Program serves individuals and households earning 80% or less of the area median income established by HUD, who reside within the County of San Bernardino HOME Consortium area.

The County’s service area includes the unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County and the cooperating cities of Adelanto, Barstow, Big Bear Lake, Chino Hills, Colton, Grand Terrace, Highland, Loma Linda, Montclair, Needles, Rancho Cucamonga, Rialto, Twentynine Palms, Yucaipa, and the Town of Yucca Valley.
