Housing in the City of Eugene

HOME Consortium Considering Additional Award

The Eugene-Springfield HOME Consortium is considering the use of $231,842 in federal HOME Investment Partnership Program funds for a new construction proposal to create affordable housing opportunities for low-income households.  

  • St. Vincent de Paul was awarded $600,000 to build a 35-unit apartment complex for low-income households at 1062 Main Street in Springfield, that will include 8 units for persons with developmental disabilities. 
  • SVDP requests $231,842 in additional HOME funds to address a project financing gap caused by the nationwide Low Income Housing Tax Credit pricing reduction.  The request letter is posted here.

A Public hearing will be conducted at the HOME Consortium Governing Board meeting held on Tuesday June 6 from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m.in the Springfield City Hall Chambers, 225 Fifth Street, Springfield.  Written comments will be accepted until 12:00 noon on June 6th.  Send to: Ellen Meyi-Galloway, 99 West 10th Avenue, Eugene, Oregon, 97401.  For more information, call 541-682-5532 or email.

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.
