Affordable Housing Trust Fund Request for Proposals

2024 Request for Proposals (RFP) for Affordable Housing Development

The City of Eugene invites proposals for the development of housing affordable to low and moderate-income households.  Resources offered through this Request for Proposals (RFP) are Affordable Housing Trust Funds (AHTF) generated by the City of Eugene’s Construction Excise Tax.  

 

Resources available

The amount of AHTF funds available is $1,056,545.  

 

Application process

Please submit a letter of intent to apply by Thursday, February 1, 2024, describing the potential site and proposed uses of funds.  This will help us plan for evaluating proposals.   

 

UPDATE:

Due to the impacts of the January ice storm, the application deadline has been extended. Completed applications are due Monday, March 11, 2024, no later than 5:00 p.m. Proposals must be received by the application deadline and contain all required components to be eligible for review.  

 

This RFP is an open, competitive process to award available resources based upon satisfaction of the described criteria.  Submission of a proposal does not guarantee funding.  

 

 An Evaluation Committee and the AHTF-Advisory Committee (AHTF-AC) will score and rank proposals. The scores and ranking(s) will be presented to the Eugene City Council, who will make final decisions for AHTF funding.  

 

Funding Priorities

AHTF resources available through this RFP will be prioritized for creation of housing demonstrating significant innovation or benefit through the project design, financing, or management structure (examples include cooperatives, community land trusts, shared equity homeownership, Single Resident Occupancy shared housing, multi-generational housing, and more.) Proposals will be accepted that include at least 4 dwellings.  

 

Additional priorities are for proposals designed to transition people out of homelessness; developments serving populations disproportionately impacted by housing cost burden and historically excluded from housing opportunities such as BIPOC and LGBTQI+ residents/communities, and high priority special needs populations as outlined in the 2020 Consolidated Plan.  It is preferred that proposals include more than 10% of units for people with mobility challenges.
