The Office for Community Development (OCD) administers the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program Grant (HOME) received by the City from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The CDBG funds may be used for a wide range of activities that improve housing, the living environment and economic opportunities, primarily for persons of low to moderate income. The HOME funds can be used for housing (rehab, new construction, homebuyer) only.
Please explore the Community Development webpages for information on homeownership, fair housing, historic resources, and CDBG-funded public services available to Holyoke residents and businesses.
Please check back periodically for Proposals for the HOME Partnerships Program funds. The general purpose of the HOME program is to expand the supply of decent and affordable housing for low and moderate income residents.
