Lunch Plenary: Leveraging Federal Resources for Affordable Housing: Insights From HUD & USDA-RD & EPA

Room: Lloyd Center Ballroom
Tracks: Executive Leadership, Policy and Advocacy, Clean Energy & Climate Resiliency

Join us for an insightful plenary session that delves into federal resources available to support affordable housing projects in Oregon. This lunchtime panel, featuring representatives from HUD’s Oregon field office, USDA Rural Development and EPA, will provide valuable insights on tapping into various funding streams and navigating federal programs and policies.

This session will explore new opportunities arising from the Inflation Reduction Act, offering resources for Clean Energy & Climate Resiliency projects including solar arrays, EV hook-ups, and other energy-efficiency enhancements. Our experts will also shed light on additional federal dollars supporting rural housing developments and disaster recovery efforts.

Learn about application processes, timelines, and strategies for competing for these critical resources. Whether you represent an established affordable housing organization or a grassroots community-based group, this plenary will demystify how to access federal resources.
