Another innovative idea for helping families with housing was to take advantage of the HUD Program known as the HOME Program. The HOME Program, which is based on Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act, and federally funded to State and Local Governments through what are called Block Grants (CDBG) to provide the communities the ability to further develop affordable housing, THRHA worked with the State of Alaska to take advantage of this program! By working with AHFC and partners alike, we were able to develop HOME funded housing in the communities of Juneau, Kake and Klawock. Built by THRHA using the most state of the art construction techniques including techniques derived from our partnership with the University of Alaska Fairbanks in Cold Climate Research studies, HOME homes are 5 star energy rated modern construction and are typically made as 3 or 4 bedroom single family units, and duplex styles. THRHA sees the viability of the HOME Investment Partnership Program Housing and continues to pursue grants for future development.
