In April 2017, Bogalusa Rebirth was certified by the Louisiana Housing Corporation as a Community Housing Development Organization.

A Community Housing Development Organization

At least 15 percent of HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds must be set aside for specific activities to be undertaken by a special type of nonprofit called a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). A CHDO is a private nonprofit, community-based organization that has staff with the capacity to develop affordable housing for the community it serves. In order to qualify for designation as a CHDO, the organization must meet certain requirements pertaining to their legal status, organizational structure, and capacity and experience.

With Participating Jurisdiction (PJ) approval, CHDOs may use HOME funds for all eligible HOME activities. However, in order to count towards the 15 percent set-aside, a CHDO must act as the owner, developer, or sponsor of a project that is an eligible set-aside activity. These eligible set-aside activities include: the acquisition and/or rehabilitation of rental housing; new construction of rental housing; acquisition and/or rehabilitation of homebuyer properties; new construction of homebuyer properties; and direct financial assistance to purchasers of HOME-assisted housing that has been developed with HOME funds by the CHDO.

For more information on Community Housing Development Organizations, see 24 CFR 92 Subpart G:

  • 24 CFR 92.208 – Eligible CHDO operating expenses and capacity building costs
  • 24 CFR 92.300 – Set-aside for community housing development organizations
  • 24 CFR 92.301 – Project-specific assistance to community housing development organizations
