Federal HOME-ARP Program

The Federal HOME-ARP program provides a total of $5 billion to assist individuals or households who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and other vulnerable populations. It is funded through The American Rescue Plan (ARP). The funding can be used to provide housing, rental assistance, non-congregate shelter, and/or supportive services. The city of St. Joseph is slated to receive $1,337,926 in HOME-ARP funding to address homelessness and increase housing. 

The City of St. Joseph has completed a thorough gaps analysis and needs assessment as part of its planning for HOME-ARP funds.
