Community Development

The Down East HOME Consortium

In late 1996, 10 communities in Nash and Edgecombe counties formed the Down East HOME Consortium (DEHC). With the City of Rocky Mount, already a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement City, as the Lead Entity, the Consortium began receiving Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funds in 1997.

Currently, the following jurisdictions comprise the DEHC:

Conetoe                       Edgecombe County

Middlesex                   Pinetops

Princeville                   Rocky Mount 

Sharpsburg                 Spring Hope


Nash and Edgecombe counties’ membership in the DEHC does not include the governments of the municipalities in both counties who chose not to join the Consortium.
