Housing in the City of Eugene

2017 Housing Request for Proposals (RFP)

The cities of Eugene and Springfield approved the use of $1,249,022 in federal HOME Investment Partnership Program funds for two proposals for affordable housing in Eugene.  Please click on the links to see the proposals.

  • Cornerstone Community Housing was awarded $549,022 to build Delta Court Village, 22 units for low-income households in the Santa Clara Neighborhood in Eugene at 850 and 870 Hunsaker Lane.
  • Homes for Good, formerly known as the Housing and Community Services Agency (HACSA) was awarded $700,000 to build Market District Commons, 50 units at 6th Avenue and Oak Street in the downtown neighborhood in Eugene to be targeted to low income households including ten units for homeless veterans.
An Evaluation Committee held a public hearing, and reviewed and scored the proposals January 9, 2018. Homes for Good's Market District Commons proposal and Cornerstone Community Housing's Delta Court Village proposal received the highest scores. The Eugene City Council approved the top two highest scored proposals for funding January 22nd.  The HOME Consortium Governing Board met February 22nd and voted to award the Market District Commons and Delta Court Village proposals.  For more information, call 541-682-5532 or email the Consortium here.

The City’s primary role is to allocate funds (federal, local and private) toward housing solutions in Eugene. Allocations for new construction and acquisitions most often take place through a public request for proposal (RFP) process. The City of Eugene does not own, operate, build or manage housing.

Low-Income Housing
Since 1979, Eugene has acquired sites for future low-income housing. These sites are critical to the success of local housing efforts because site control is vital for obtaining other subsidies. The City also has a history of granting property tax exemptions and assistance with permit fees for public purpose housing.
