What We Do

The Community Development team is committed to making Eugene a better place to live and work. The division works towards the achievement of this general goal through an array of programs focused on more specific goals, including: 

  • Affordable rental housing development and housing repair (HOME)
  • Downtown planning and improvement
  • Economic stability through living-wage job creation
  • Managing federal Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) activities



The Eugene-Springfield HOME Consortium has released the 2020 Housing Request for Proposals (RFP) to invite developers to submit proposals for acquisition- rehabilitation projects and new construction projects to be housing for low-income persons in Eugene or Springfield.  For more information please see the Affordable Housing Development programs website.
