Home Investment Partnership Program
The City of Elgin and Kane County have formed a partnership called a consortium. The newly formed consortium will make additional federal dollars available through participation in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME). For-profit and not-for-profit developers may apply for funding.

Eligible Activities
HOME dollars are used exclusively for affordable housing activities. Eligible activities under HOME are:
  • Home purchase
  • Rehabilitation of owner and rental units
  • New construction
  • Acquisition
  • Tenant-based rental assistance

Funding Priorities

Funding priorities will be determined through the development of a five-year consolidated plan. Kane County has taken on the responsibility of administering the Kane / Elgin consortium. Visit the Kane County website for further details about funding and application deadlines.
