Attend the HOME-ARP Allocation Plan Public Hearing

Barnstable County is taking initiative to ensure that the county’s homeless population receives adequate assistance and support. All are invited to review their draft HOME-ARP Allocation plan, as well as attend a virtual public hearing on February 27th via Zoom – your participation will be vital in ensuring success.

ABOUT HOME ARP ALLOCATION PLAN The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) made funds available for housing, services, and shelter to individuals experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness and other vulnerable populations.

In September 2021, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the Barnstable County HOME Consortium (BCHC) $1,556,508 in HOME-ARP funds. The BCHC includes all 15 towns of Barnstable County and administered by Barnstable County as the lead entity. All HOME-ARP funds must be spent by September 30, 2030.
