Community Development

What We Do

The Community Development team is committed to making Eugene a better place to live and work. The division works towards the achievement of this general goal through an array of programs focused on more specific goals, including: 

  • Affordable rental housing development and housing repair (HOME)
  • Downtown planning and improvement
  • Economic stability through living-wage job creation
  • Managing federal Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) activities

Affordable Housing Requests for Proposals

If you have a development proposal for new construction, and/or acquisition of existing residential or non-residential structures to be converted to affordable housing for low-income persons in Eugene or Springfield, or if you have buildable land for sale, we'd like to hear more about it. For more information please see the Affordable Housing Development website.
