Who will pay a CHDO for carrying out CHDO set-aside projects?
Unfortunately, there is no general administrative or operating money in HOME for participating jurisdictions, CHDOs, or other HOME development sponsors. However, direct project-related staff costs are HOME-eligible, such as a CHDO's expense in hiring a project manager for HOME-assisted development. A CHDO staff member's activity on tasks other than direct development roles in HOME developments is considered ineligible expenditures. Homebuyer counseling is not an eligible HOME cost except when the CHDO, as project owner, has actually incurred the cost of counseling provided to households that will ultimately purchase a HOME-assisted unit.
