Community Development

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 2019 Affordable Housing Request for Proposals (RFP) to invite developers to submit proposals for acquisition-rehabilitation and new construction projects to house low-income persons in the City of Springfield.  For more information please see the Affordable Housing Development programs website.

2020 Consolidated Plan

The City of Eugene is currently in the process of creating the Eugene-Springfield 2020 Consolidated Plan and Analysis of Impediments. More information is available.

Downtown Development

Exciting changes are happening downtown. We’ve seen new businesses opening, buildings filled with active uses, more people living downtown and more jobs — more than $250 million in public and private investments in our downtown. We are continuing to build on those successes with improvements to downtown infrastructure, public safety, social services and events.

Resources for Residents
The City of Eugene offers a suite of housing resources available to community members. Some of these programs are available whether or not you live in an affordable housing unit.

Business Loans

To support economic growth, the City of Eugene works with businesses and developers using a variety of programs including Art Loans, Business Growth Loans, Downtown Loans, and River Loans. See if one of our programs is right to help you grow your business!
