Program Description

The purpose of the HOME-ARP Program is to provide homeless and near-homeless assistance and supportive services through specific eligible activities to “Qualifying Populations” (QP).  

The HOME-ARP Program is funded through the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  HUD CPD Notice 21-10, titled: Requirements for the Use of Funds in the HOME-American Rescue Plan Program (CPD Notice) describes the program.

HUD allocated $3,070,455.00 to the County of York for use from April 29, 2023, to September 30, 2030. The County Commissioners designated York County Planning Commission (YCPC) as the administering agency for the County HOME-ARP program.  The YCPC’s first responsibility was to undertake a plan for the use of the funds beginning with a description of the needs of the homeless and near homeless populations in the County as well as the gaps in services to address these needs. The YCPC completed the plan on January 5, 2023, and on April 29, 2023, HUD approved the plan and authorized the County to proceed.  Click here to view the approved plan.
