HOME American Rescue Plan Program (HOME-ARP)

  • Basic Info
  • Newsroom

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides $5 billion nationwide to assist individuals or households who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and other vulnerable populations, by providing housing, rental assistance, supportive services, and non-congregate shelter, to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability across the country.

These grant funds will be administered through HUD’s HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME).

The State of Georgia received $87 million in HOME-ARP funds to be spent by 2030 on the following four eligible activities:

  • Production or Preservation of Affordable Housing
  • Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA)
  • Supportive Services, Homeless Prevention Services, and Housing Counseling
  • Purchase and Development of Non-Congregate Shelter

The State of Georgia's first step to accessing these federal funds is to develop the HOME-ARP Allocation Plan and have HUD approve it. 

Georgia Department of Community Affairs is actively reviewing data, meeting with stakeholders, and distributing surveys for public input on the Allocation Plan's activities and priorities.
