Home Investment Partnership (HOME) Program

The City is a recipient of another federal grant known as the Home Investment Partnership (HOME) Program. The HOME Program focuses exclusively on the housing needs of low and moderate income persons.

In 1996, the City of Wheeling was one of six local governments that joined to form the (West Virginia) Northern Panhandle HOME Consortium.

The HOME Consortium members are:

1. City of Wheeling
2. City of Weirton
3. Hancock County
4. Brooke County
5. Ohio County
6. Marshall County

HUD designated the City of Wheeling as the lead administrative agency.

The Consortium is awarded a grant each year for approximately $500,000. The grant is shared among the six governments. The allocation of HOME funds to each jurisdiction is based on the percentage of low and moderate income persons who reside within that jurisdiction.
