Each year, Orange County reports on activities undertaken with funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development through the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program. This annual report is called the Consolidated Annual Performance Report (CAPER).
During the 2019 CAPER period (July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020), the County disbursed approximately $375,000 in HOME funds and an additional $98,000 in local matching funds (contributed by the Towns of Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Hillsborough, as well as the County) for eligible housing activities. These activities included acquisition of rental properties to be preserved for low-income renters, provision of down payment assistance for low-income homebuyers, rehabilitation of affordable rental units, and provision of tenant-based rental assistance.
