Community Development

The Community Development Division 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 2018 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. Proposals will also be accepted for development of the city-owned property at 1505-1525 River Road. For more information please see the Housing website.


The owner of Ya-Po-Ah Terrace Apartments has applied to the City for $1.5 million in federal Community Development Block Grant funds for an extensive rehabilitation project.
