UPDATE: Due to the impacts of the January ice storm, the deadline for the City of Eugene Affordable Housing Trust Fund Request for Proposals (RFP) has been extended to March 11, 2024

City of Eugene seeks to fund innovative, affordable housing projects

The 2024 Request for Proposals for Affordable Housing Trust Funds is now open. To support the creation of local innovative housing projects that are affordable to people with lower and moderate incomes the City of Eugene is seeking proposals for use of $1 million in Affordable Housing Trust Funds (AHTF). The AHTF is a local source of funding generated by a 0.5% construction excise tax on new construction in Eugene.

More information on funding priorities and the Request for Proposal process and application is available on the AHTF website.

Proposed rental or home-ownership projects should:

·      Be located in Eugene city limits;

·      Include at least 4 dwellings;

·      Meet affordability and other criteria outlined in the application; and

·      Submit a letter of interest by February 1 and a complete application by March 11.

Projects designed to transition people out of homelessness as well as projects serving populations disproportionately impacted by housing cost burden and historically excluded from housing opportunities such as BIPOC, LGBTQI+ residents/communities and high priority special needs populations are preferred.

The Request for Proposals is an open, competitive process. Proposals are reviewed, scored, and ranked by community members on the AHTF Advisory Committee. That information is presented to the Eugene City Council, who makes final decisions for AHTF funding.
