  • Loans, pass-through grants, development assistance, predevelopment assistance, and other financial assistance to rural housing organizations, CDCs, CHDOs, local governments, and tribes to carry-out community development and affordable housing activities that benefit low-income or low- and moderate-income families and persons
  • Support for the implementation of other HUD programs in rural areas, including, but not limited to, the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships, Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA), and the Continuum of Care program
