The Affordable and Special Needs Housing (ASNH) Program goals are to create and preserve affordable housing units within the commonwealth of Virginia, with an emphasis on non-entitlement areas. The program achieves these goals by providing assistance in the form of financing to projects that will meet local affordable housing needs and support state housing policy.  Approximately $2.5 million in HOME funds will be made available during this application cycle to assist affordable housing projects selected through the ASNH program application process.  

An additional $700,000 is also available to provide one-time gap financing for projects serving persons with severe mental illness.  Applicants should complete the standard HOME application, along with the new supplemental attachment.
