Single Family Development (SFD) Program


HOME provides funding to nonprofits that TDHCA certifies as Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) for the new construction or rehabilitation of affordable single family homes. Single family homes built or rehabilitated with the assistance of HOME funds must comply with required income restrictions and follow certain design and quality requirements. Development funds are awarded on a first-come first-served basis through an application submitted in response to the published Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA).

Nonprofits applying for single family development funds must apply for certification as a CHDO. Additional funds are available in the form of a grant for operating expenses not related to the development project. In order to be eligible for CHDO project funds and certification, the nonprofit organization must act as a sponsor, developer, or owner of the single family housing development that was submitted for the project funding application. CHDO Certification is provided by the Department in conjunction with a HOME development award. CHDOs must be recertified every twelve months during the agreement period.
