Please Share Your Thoughts on the Region’s Housing Needs

In September 2021, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocated $1,965,737 in Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) American Rescue Plan funding to the Southwestern NC HOME Consortium, which consists of Haywood, Jackson, Macon, Swain, Clay, and Graham counties. This supplemental funding (HOME-ARP) is part of The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 that appropriated funding to HOME entitlement communities to provide housing and services to vulnerable populations experiencing housing insecurity. 

The Southwestern Commission is developing an Allocation Plan that will detail the communities’ priorities for use of the region’s HOME-ARP funding. The Southwestern Commission is conducting multiple public engagement activities, including a needs & gaps survey, to garner input that will be included in the draft Allocation Plan. 

Community members and stakeholders are invited to share their thoughts by completing the Southwestern NC HOME Consortium: HOME-ARP Needs and Gaps Regional Survey, which is linked below.
