5 HOME Commitment Change GAO issued opinion that HUD’s current “cumulative method” violates Sec 218(g) of NAHA, which establishes 24-month commitment requirement. – HUD must implement commitment and CHDO reservation requirements on a grant-specific basis HUD drafting proposed rule to implement grant-specific method 5

6 HOME Commitments PJs must commit funds from each specific grant within 24 months 15% of each grant must be used for CHDO set- aside project (no more cumulative average) HOME funds uncommitted after 24 months cannot be recommitted – Cancelled projects – Projects completed below budget Change to treatment of program income required 6
