Available for Public Comment
The Fairfax County Proposed HOME-ARP Allocation Plan is now available online for public comment. Fairfax County received an award of $7.88 million in HOME-ARP funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to address homelessness assistance and supportive services. The County developed a Proposed HOME-ARP Allocation Plan and is seeking community feedback on the Plan.
Funds may be used for 1) development and support of affordable rental housing, 2) tenant-based rental assistance, 3) provision of supportive services, and 4) acquisition and development of non-congregate shelter units. Qualifying populations to be served under HOME-ARP are: 1) homeless; 2) at risk of homelessness; 3) those fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking; and 4) other families requiring services or housing assistance to prevent homelessness, or households at greatest risk of housing instability.
