What’s in the plan?
Breaking New Ground: the OHCS Statewide Housing Plan, is a five-year look at the agency’s priorities, goals, and strategies in ensuring a stable and affordable housing landscape.

“There is no single solution that can solve the housing crisis in Oregon, but together, we are making progress,” said Governor Kate Brown. “The new Statewide Housing Plan, driven by Oregon Housing and Community Services, will serve as our roadmap to make sure more Oregonians have a safe, affordable place to call home.”

The Plan identifies six priorities with corresponding goals and strategies including:
Equity and Racial Justice: Advance equity and racial justice by identifying and addressing institutional and systemic barriers that have created and perpetuated patterns of disparity in housing and economic prosperity.
Homelessness: Build a coordinated and concerted statewide effort to prevent and end homelessness, with a focus on ending unsheltered homelessness of Oregon’s children and veterans.

Permanent Supportive Housing: Invest in permanent supportive housing, a proven strategy to reduce chronic homelessness and reduce barriers to housing stability.

Affordable Rental Housing: Work to close the affordable rental housing gap and reduce housing cost burden for low-income Oregonians.

Home ownership: Provide more low- and moderate-income Oregonians with the tools to successfully achieve and maintain home ownership, particularly in communities of color.

Rural Communities: Change the way OHCS does business in small towns and rural communities to be responsive to the unique housing and service needs and unlock opportunities for housing development.

Housing Oregon is working towards the day when every Oregonian has a safe and healthy place to call home.
Our mission is to support and strengthen our members through advocacy, communications, and best practices development.
