Dear Homeownership Partners,

Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) has issued a request for applications (RFA) to help address racial disparities in homeownership. This RFA offers financial assistance to help with the costs of removing language barriers to homeownership programs and services and to conduct community outreach and engagement.

The RFA is published in the state’s electronic procurement system, OregonBuys, at https://oregonbuys.gov/. Please be sure to register as a supplier to ensure you can access the RFA and participate in this opportunity. If you have any trouble registering, please contact OregonBuys supplier support at 1-855-800-5046.

OHCS anticipates the term of the grants issued through this RFA will end on June 30, 2025, and each award will be of a maximum of $70,000. OHCS will host a pre-application conference on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at 11 a.m. to explain the application process and answer questions about the RFA.
