The Orange County HOME Consortium is an entitlement community under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's HOME Investment Partnerships Program. The Orange County HOME Consortium is made up of four members: Orange County and the Towns of Carrboro, Chapel Hill, and Hillsborough.
Orange County is the lead entity in the preparation and submission of the Five Year Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan describes community needs, available resources, housing priorities, and proposed activities. In the Consolidated Plan, the Consortium addresses the housing needs and goals for all of Orange County. The Consortium allows local jurisdictions to take a regional and collaborative approach to addressing critical affordable housing needs.
