Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME)

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
The primary objective of this federal program is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and economic opportunities principally for persons of low and moderate income levels.
Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG)
A federal program designed to help improve the quality of existing emergency shelters for the homeless, to make available additional shelters, to meet the costs of operating shelters and to provide essential social services to homeless individuals and to help prevent homelessness.
Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP)
The primary objective of this federal program is to address the rising community issues arising from the mortgage foreclosure crisis. In addressing these issues, the City of Erie has partnered with Housing and Neighborhood Development Services (H.A.N.D.S), the Erie Redevelopment Authority (ERA), and the Bayfront Eastside Taskforce (BEST) to acquire ten (10) abandoned/foreclosed properties in the Little Italy, Central City, and the Bayfront Eastside neighborhoods. Additionally, we have demolished ten (10) blighted homes and have constructed six (6) new single-family homes that are available for purchase to those at less than 120% of median income. We have also provided funding for the rehabilitation of a large apartment building on East 12th Street into six (6) apartments that have been made available for individuals at 50% of median income. These projects will act to stabilize urban neighborhoods that have been hit hard by the national foreclosure crisis.
