HOME INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM
Through the HOME Investment Partnership Program, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development helps state and local governments implement long-term affordable housing strategies that respond to each community's mix of needs and resources. The City of Huntington has combined with the counties of Cabell and Wayne to form the Cabell-Huntington-Wayne Housing Consortium. Through the Consortium the City offers HOME funds to qualified first-time homebuyers to assist with down payment and closing costs. The Consortium also offers HOME funds to assist in the development and construction of affordable housing units.
