Through the Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnership Program and General funds, the City provides housing assistance for the purchase, rehabilitation, and/or new construction of homes through several different programs for income-eligible residents within the corporate City Of Columbia limits. To further encourage homeownership, the City's Housing Department restructured existing programs and created new ones in resulting in six categories of housing options for purchase, purchase/rehabilitation, new construction, and home improvements.
