HOMEfires Vol. 1, No. 2: Applicability of HOME Program Requirements to Purchasers of 2-4 unit Owner-Occupied Projects


Date Published: July 1997


The City of Hartford, Connecticut, in an effort to address its low homeownership rate and lack of affordable rental housing designed a HOME Program funded Homebuyer Downpayment Assistance Program for purchasers of 2-4 unit properties whose incomes may exceed low-income limits. Can HOME assistance to the purchasers under this downpayment assistance program be structured to avoid triggering the income requirement and affordability and resale/recapture restrictions contained in 92.254 of the HOME regulations for the owner-occupant?
