Affordable Housing (HOME, LCAHP)

Lake County has grant funds and forgivable loans available annually for non-profit organizations, municipalities and developers for affordable housing projects and programs serving households under 80% of area median income. Eligible projects and programs include: acquisition, rehabilitation, new construction and homebuyer assistance.

The Lake County Board has also chosen to fund the Affordable Housing Program (LCAHP) with county dollars. This program aims to promote affordable housing activities for households that are ineligible under federal guidelines, but still in need of assistance – that is, households between 80% and 100% of area median income.


Details regarding information to apply for Lake County Housing Funds can be found on the Applicants page.
