 The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides $5 billion to assist households who are homeless, at risk of homelessness and other vulnerable populations by providing housing, rental assistance, supportive services and noncongregate shelter, to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability across the country. These grant funds will be administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development (Department) through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). Under this program, the Commonwealth received $73,094,403. HOME-ARP funds can be used for the following eligible activities:

 2. Tenant-based rental assistance.

 3. Supportive services.

 4. Acquisition and development of noncongregate shelter.

 5. Nonprofit operating and capacity building assistance.

 Under the program requirements, an allocation plan must be developed and submitted to HUD for approval. During the development of the HOME-ARP allocation plan, a virtual public hearing must be held.
