Housing and Human Service Plans
Fair Housing Plan
of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As a recipient of these funds, Eugene must certify that it will “affirmatively further fair housing." Eugene strives to assure that persons of protected classes have a choice in the location of their housing.
In order to uphold its commitment to affirmatively further fair housing and meet its federal obligation to engage in fair housing planning, Eugene completed a process in 2020 that involved comprehensive data collection, consultations with public and private agencies, and extensive community engagement. The result of this process was a document which examines laws, demographics related to population, housing and housing choice called the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (which is the full document that was submitted to HUD in the HUD online format). A Summary of the Analysis of Impediments is also available.
The City of Eugene plans a number of Fair Housing activities throughout the year.
In order to receive U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds, jurisdictions are required to complete, adopt and submit a five-year Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan presents an assessment of local housing, homelessness, and community development needs, identification of priority needs for use of funds received from HUD, and presents strategies to address the priority needs. HUD funding is delivered through a combination of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) funds.
Since 1992 and continuing with this plan, the cities of Eugene and Springfield work together to develop the Eugene-Springfield Consolidated Plan. This collaboration allows for consideration of needs for the metropolitan area as a whole, development of a shared goals and strategies, and more efficient use of limited resources for plan development and reporting. A joint plan is required given that Eugene and Springfield receive HOME funds as a Consortium. Eugene and Springfield receive separate allocations of CDBG funds each year.
Similarly, Eugene must update the fair housing document, called the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). The AI identifies fair housing issues as well as actions to further fair housing across the cities.
The process included comprehensive data collection, consultations with public and private agencies, and extensive community engagement. More information is available about the 2020 Consolidated Plan process.
An Executive Summary of the 2020 Consolidated Plan is available. The complete Eugene-Springfield 2020 Consolidated Plan is also available. This document is a summary of materials submitted through HUD’s electronic plan submission template.
