W.S. receives housing grant

Oregon Housing and Community Services has announced that Warm Springs and Wasco County projects were among recipients of its multifamily federal HOME funds, and 9 percent low-income housing tax credits.

For this funding cycle, OHCS is awarding $22 million in grants and tax credits in order to increase the number of affordable housing units in Oregon.

The Greeley Heights construction project, sponsored by the Warm Springs Housing Authority, was selected to build 35 housing units to address the needs of large families on the reservation.

In Wasco County, 24 units will be constructed at Heritage Heights in The Dalles for farm workers. It is sponsored by the Columbia Cascade Housing Group. The amount of the awards was not listed at this time.

OHCS was able to fund 13 of the 29 project proposals it received. These projects will provide or preserve more than 500 units of affordable housing across the state.

Projects were selected in each of the five identified regions, which include Metro, Valley/North Coast, Southern, Eastern, and Central Oregon.
