The Miami-Dade County HOME Program is an integral part of Miami-Dade’s commitment to providing affordable housing for low- and very-low income individuals in the county. This program is administered by Miami-Dade County government and provides financial and technical assistance to participating jurisdictions in order to expand and strengthen partnerships between local and state governments to create and implement affordable housing strategies.
The HOME Program helps individuals and families with low incomes purchase or construct a home by providing down payment and closing cost assistance. It also offers assistance in the form of grants, loans, and other resources to eligible households who need help in order to maintain their home in good condition.
The HOME Program also provides funding for affordable rental housing developments. These developments are designed to provide quality, affordable housing to those in need. The program also provides financial assistance to local governments in order to help them create housing strategies, such as improving infrastructure and creating incentives for developers to build affordable housing.
The HOME Program also provides assistance for homebuyer and rental counseling, as well as financial literacy, for low-income households. This helps individuals and families to make informed decisions about their housing options and to better manage their finances.
