OCEAN COUNTY FY 2021 Action Plan Substantial Amendment HOME Program – American Rescue Plan (ARP) Funding


County of Ocean hereby announces that it will be submitting a Substantial Amendment Request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requesting substantial changes to the FY2021 Annual Action Plan. The Amendment consists of changes to the Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) Grant to include the HOME – ARP Allocation Plan.

These proposed changes have been identified in the corresponding FY Annual Action Plan (AAP) and can be found on the County of Ocean’s website at https://www.planning.co.ocean.nj.us/frmHomePBoard. Pursuant to HUD’s regulations, the substantial change amends the AAP to include the current HUD program waivers and increases the HOME fund allocation to reflect the additional funding from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, (ARP) Public Law 117-2 to the FY 2021-2022 HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) – HOME ARP.

The County will be receiving $4,865,698.00 in HOME – ARP funding under the ARP Act funding allocation.

The HOME-ARP funding will be used for supportive services, non-profit operating, administration and planning, and the development of affordable rental housing.

Prior to submission of the HOME-ARP Allocation Plan, County of Ocean will hold a public hearing to receive comments regarding the use of funds and eligible activities on February 22, 2023 at 6:00pm at the Ocean County Planning Department, 129 Hooper Avenue, First Floor, Toms River, NJ, 08754.
