ICF developed the Written Agreements Chart, which provides the HOME Investment Partnerships Act Program (HOME) requirements related to the types of provisions a grantee must include in its written agreement with various partners. ICF developed the chart under contract to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under a technical assistance contract.
The chart can be used by grantees to ensure their written agreements for the HOME program meet the minimum requirements as well as to study suggested written agreement provisions. The chart provides separate areas a grantee can use to check requirements for each type of entity for subrecipients; state recipients; owners;, developers or sponsors; and homebuyers, homeowners, and tenants.
ICF has worked with HUD on HOME and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) technical assistance for almost 20 years, providing training courses, guidebooks, and online training and tools such as the HOME Written Agreements Chart.
