A total of $5.1 million in grant funds is available through NOAH to purchase land and/or complete predevelopment site work for future affordable homeownership development. Future for-sale affordable housing shall serve households at 80% area median income or below for a period of no less than 99 years.

Land Acquisition grants must be committed and expended no later than December 31, 2024.

This project is funded by the American Rescue Plan, a federal economic stimulus bill designed to help communities recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recession. The City of Portland is receiving $208 million of local recovery funds. Investments focus on three key priorities: houselessness response and household stabilization, business and commercial district stabilization, and community health and safety.
