Governor Tom Wolf announced the distribution of $8,210,240 in funding through the Pennsylvania HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) to support affordable housing in Butler, Clarion, Clearfield, Columbia, Crawford, Franklin, Fulton, Indiana, Lancaster, Lawrence, Lebanon, Luzerne, Mercer, Montgomery, and Perry counties.

“Pennsylvanians should not have to choose between paying for basic necessities or needed home repairs to ensure the safety of their loved ones,” said Gov. Wolf. “The HOME program provides low-income individuals with access to the affordable, safe, and reliable housing they and their families deserve.”

HOME is a federally funded program that provides municipalities with grant and loan assistance to expand and preserve the supply of decent and affordable housing for low- and very low-income Pennsylvanians.

Crawford County made the most recent list of HOME funding awards.

$750,000 will go to the City of Titusville for existing owner-occupied housing in partnership with the Titusville Redevelopment Authority.
