About the CDBG and HOME Programs
Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG)
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program provides annual grants on a formula basis to states, cities, and counties to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. The program is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended 42 U.S.C. 5301 et seq. Learn more about the CDBG program.
HOME Investment Partnerships Program
The HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) provides formula grants to states and localities that communities use - often in partnership with local nonprofit groups - to fund a wide range of activities including building, buying, and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or homeownership or providing direct rental assistance to low-income people. HOME is the largest federal block grant to state and local governments designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low-income households. HOME funds are awarded annually as formula grants to participating jurisdictions (PJs). The program’s flexibility allows states and local governments to use HOME funds for grants, direct loans, loan guarantees or other forms of credit enhancements, or rental assistance or security deposits. Learn more about the HOME program at HUD.gov.

Marion County is an entitlement community under the Federal HOME Program and is establishing a Down Payment Assistance Program. The Marion County Community Development Division directs the Down Payment Assistance Program for low-to-moderate income residents (80% AMI or lower) of Marion County.
Down Payment Assistance Program
As a new entitlement community receiving funds from HUD Marion County is establishing its first down payment assistance program. A maximum amount of $25,000 can be acquired for down payment assistance for an eligible homebuyer. HOME assistance will be in the form of a 0% interest, deferred payment loan whereby 100% of the amount provided must be repaid if sold within the first 5 years. From years 6-10, the loan will decline $3,000 a year until there is $10,000 remaining balance. After 10 years, the remaining $10,000 will remain on the property as a 99-year lien until the property is sold and the funds are paid back to the county. The $25,000 may be increased program-wide at the County's discretion based on need and housing prices. Underwriting will be conducted on each property to determine the amount of subsidy to contribute to each household. A written agreement, signed by all parties, in the form of a trust deed will serve as the security for these loans. The lien will be recorded in the land records of Marion County. If the County determines an increase of down payment assistance is needed and it results in over $40,000 or more in assistance the County will update its recapture provisions to determine an appropriate finance mechanism.
Applications for the Marion County Down Payment Assistance Program are available electronically through Neighborly Software. To access the application, please use the provided link to register for an account and follow the instructions on the screen to fill out the application.
If you have any questions, please contact the Community Development Division Staff.
