The Asheville Regional Housing Consortium (ARHC) consists of contiguous units of general local governments that come together to qualify for a direct allocation of HOME funds from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  This creates an opportunity for these jurisdictions to take a more regional, collaborative approach to meeting their affordable housing needs.  The Consortium region consists of the City of Asheville, Buncombe County, Henderson County, Transylvania County, and Madison County. The ARHC has chosen the City of Asheville, the participating jurisdiction “PJ”, as the “lead entity”.  The lead entity retains primary responsibility for ensuring consortium compliance with all HOME Program rules and reporting to HUD.

In order to carry out HOME activities and meet all HOME requirements, the consortium operates as one entity that is able to operate efficiently and effectively to assess affordable housing needs, develop a plan to address those needs, make funding decisions, carry out complex housing activities, self-monitor progress, account for expenditures, and report to HUD.
