Draft HOME-ARP Allocation Plan
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides $5 billion to assist individuals or households who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and other vulnerable populations, by providing housing, rental assistance, supportive services, and non-congregate shelter, to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability across the country. Chesapeake was allocated $2,004,685 in FY2021 HOME ARP funding.
