Community HOME Investment Program (CHIP)
The Community HOME Investment Program (CHIP) provides grants to local governments, nonprofit organizations and public housing authorities to address the needs of affordable housing development in their communities. CHIP funds may be used to build new affordable single family homes for resale and to provide housing rehabilitation for low-income and moderate-income home owners.
Annually, DCA releases a Notice of Funding Availability and a grant application.
Eligible CHIP applicants include local governments that have not been designated by HUD as a Participating Jurisdiction (PJ) for the HOME program, organizations designated with a 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) status, or Local Public Housing Authorities.
Homeowner Rehabilitation: CHIP funds may be used to assist existing low income homeowners by providing rehabilitation assistance to their homes.
New Construction: CHIP funds may be used to build single family homes for low-to-moderate income homebuyers.
