It takes less than 30 seconds to move toward homeownership. And it is free. Let us help you.



The Cumberland County HOME Consortium, a partnership between the City of Portland and the Communities of Cumberland County offer housing programs to:

  • Assist first-time buyers to purchase homes in Cumberland County.
  • Help Cumberland County homeowners renovate their homes and apartments.
  • Assist developers, both non-profit and for-profit, to build new affordable rental housing in Cumberland County.

Our focus is providing decent, safe and affordable housing for low and moderate income residents of Cumberland County.

A wide range of people benefit from these services, including senior citizens who need new furnaces and other repairs to remain in their homes; the single mom purchasing her first home; the family just starting out in need of an affordable apartment to rent; and the handicapped individual in need of an affordable and accessible home.

For further information on these programs visit our offices in Room 313 of City Hall or call 874-8698.
