  • Building or rehabilitating housing for rent or ownership;
  • "Other reasonable and necessary expenses related to the development of non-luxury housing," including site acquisition or improvement, demolition of dilapidated housing to make way for HOME-assisted development and payment of relocation expenses; and
  • ​Tenant-based rental assistance​
