​Grant Funds Still Available for HOMES Program; Applications Due Oct. 31

10/18/2021

​UPDATE 10/25: Application deadline extended to Friday, November 19, 2021.

Mecklenburg County homeowners who are struggling with rising costs of living have an ally in the HOMES program. But the deadline to apply for help is fast approaching, and there are still a lot of funds left. Mecklenburg County residents are reminded to submit all required documentation as a part of the application. Applications without 2020 income verification are not able to be processed. 

HOMES (Helping Out Mecklenburg's Homeowners with Economic Support) offers qualifying Mecklenburg County residents an economic assistance grant up to $340 that helps reduce the cost of annual homeownership. There is no age requirement to participate in the program, and the home does not have to be paid off. Mecklenburg County homeowners who are eligible for a HOMES grant have lived in their home for at least the last three years, have no more than one delinquent tax bill in the last three years, and meet a qualifying total household income level. Please see www.mecknc.gov/4HOMES for a full list of eligibility requirements. 

"The HOMES program still has funds available for qualified homeowners," said Yulonda Griffin, Department of Community Resources Director. " We want to see as many people as possible get the help they need." 

New applicants and previous grant recipients are encouraged to complete and submit the easy, one- page application and submit by mail or email. Applications and verifications MUST be submitted and postmarked by October 31, 2021. 

Please visit www.mecknc.gov/4HOMES to confirm eligibility and to download an application in English or Spanish. Completed applications must be printed and mailed or emailed to 4homes@mecknc.gov

Applicants may pick up paper applications at the Department of Community Resources or the County Assessor's Office, both at 3205 Freedom Drive, or request by phone at (980) 314-HOME (4663). All printed/paper applications must be mailed to the Department of Community Resources, 3205 Freedom Drive, Suite 1000, Charlotte, NC 28208.
