Department of Housing and Urban Development's Dollar Homes Program
Page 2


In addition, the Dollar Homes Program is also designed to enable communities to make good use of vacant homes that have remained on the market for six months, and at the same time it seeks to make the newly occupied homes act as instruments towards neighborhood revitalization, for the reason that it could attract new residents and new business establishments to the area.


Since HUD is partnering with local governments for the Dollar Homes Program, the agency also requires that the properties be located within the jurisdiction of the purchasing local government, granted that their intentions are limited to using the properties for a clear public purpose instead of using it to acquire profit.

Local governments will be considered eligible to participate in the Dollar Homes Program as long as they are authorized by their local law to make the purchase, and as long as they intend to make this houses available for low-to-moderate income families, as implied by the Dollar Homes Program.


The Department of Housing and Urban Development, the primary agency who established the Dollar Homes Program, is the US government's premiere agency that is primarily responsible for increasing home-ownership rates, providing support to community development projects and increasing access to affordable housing opportunities.

In the fiscal year 2007, the Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that at least 70 homes were sold for $1 under the Dollar Homes Program.
