Proposed Regulation Changes to the HOME Program
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Department of Housing and Community Development (Department) proposes to formally amend regulations which govern implementation of the Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). The existing regulations are codified in Title 25, Division 1, Chapter 7, Subchapter 17, Sections 8200-8220 of the California Code of Regulations.
The purpose of the Regulations changes is to allow the state to carry out its own HOME Program in order to allow affordable housing projects to be built to serve the California Native American Tribes.
On January 22, 2016, the Department of Housing and Community Development ("Department"), published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to formally adopt amendments to State of California ("State") regulations governing the HOME Program ("State Regulations"). The 45-day public comment period for the proposed amendments to the State Regulations was January 22, 2016 through March 7, 2016. Department Staff held a public hearing on March 7, 2016 in Sacramento for any interested parties. On May 26, 2016, the Department issued a 15-day Notice of Proposed Amendments to Regulations Governing the HOME program. Public comments on these changes were accepted from May 26, 2016 through June 10, 2016.
The HOME Proposed Rulemaking package has been “ENDORSED APPROVED” by the Office of Administration Law (OAL) as of October 31, 2016. Please see link directly below.
