Urban | Suburban | Rural
An Oregon state-level program to acquire hotels and motels for conversion to non-congregate shelter during Covid-19 and eventually become permanent affordable housing. Oregon’s Legislature allocated $65 million¬–including CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds, FEMA, Emergency Solutions Grants–$30 million for eight counties and tribal communities impacted by wildfires, and $35 to the other 28 counties of Oregon. Additionally, $9.7 million was allotted for additional projects. Through a competitive grant process, $71.7 million has been approved for 19 properties creating 867 units. Approximately 2/3 of the applicants intend to convert the properties to transitional or permanent supportive housing in 2-5 years.
