Housing Policy Board

Role of the Housing Policy Board

The Intergovernmental Housing Policy Board (HPB) acts as a forum for public input into the community issues related to affordable housing. It reviews low-income housing issues and makes policy, funding, and other recommendations regarding affordable housing to Eugene and Lane County governments. The mission of the HPB is to increase the availability of decent, affordable housing for low and very low income families and individuals in Lane County.
