Creating Stable, Safe Housing for Eugene Residents
The City of Eugene seeks to create a range of stable, safe, and affordable housing opportunities for area residents through a suite of funding, programs, and supportive policies. Eugene programs provide financial and regulatory incentives for the development of permanent, transitional and emergency housing by primary nonprofit partner organizations. City programs are guided through the Eugene-Springfield 2015 Consolidated Plan Opens a New Window. . Through the investments of the City of Eugene and many other organizations, our community has created over 3400 units of permanent affordable housing.
Affordable Housing Development
Housing Development programs includes funding for acquisitions, new construction, rehabilitation, and project-related soft costs. Eugene awards funds in this category through an annual Housing Request for Proposals. Subsidies for development include land, HOME Investment Partnership Program funds, system development charge waivers, and property tax exemptions. Regulatory incentives include density bonuses and reduction of parking requirements. Projects receiving funds include small developments for special need populations as well as medium sized affordable housing development.
Rental Rehabilitation Revolving Loan Program
In addition to adding units, efforts are needed to preserve existing rental and ownership housing for low-income persons. Through the federal CDBG program, Eugene operates a low interest Rental Rehabilitation Revolving Loan Program with CDBG funds for rental rehabilitation and owner rehabilitation units.
