Excerpt: “Oregon’s coordinated care organizations (CCOs) see a huge need for safe, affordable housing in their communities. They also see a clear connection between health and housing and understand the value of investing in housing to improve health. As we move forward with health transformation in Oregon, opportunities will expand to connect housing-related services with the health care system.”

SUBSIDIZED HOUSING VS. AFFORDABLE HOUSING – General information Resources

What's the difference between subsidized and affordable housing? LINK: https://1241683w5peg486ulu1xf8fp-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Affordable-vs-Subsidized-Housing.pdf

What is the difference between Section 8 and Affordable Housing?

Section 8 housing provides project-based rental assistance. This means that the rent is subsidized and the amount of rent you pay is based on your monthly income, minus certain deductions. Affordable housing offers different income qualifying levels. Rent at these communities varies depending upon the income level target for each apartment and provides affordability to a wide range of residents. Market rate apartments are also offered at most of our Affordable housing communities. This means that no income restrictions apply to these apartments even though the market rate rents are usually very affordable.

OREGON VETERANS HOME LOAN – LINK: 
https://www.oregon.gov/odva/Home-Loans/Pages/default.aspx
Oregon is one of only five states that offers a veteran home loan program. This Oregon benefit is separate and distinct from the federal VA Home Loan Guaranty and has lent approximately $8 billion in low-interest home loans to more than 334,000 veterans since 1945.

Currently, ODVA's home loan program offers eligible veterans fixed-rate financing for:

 

HUD MINIMUM PROPERTY STANDARDS – LINK: https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/housing/rmra/mps/mpshome 
The Minimum Property Standards (MPS) establish certain minimum standards for buildings constructed under HUD housing programs. This includes new single-family homes, multi-family housing and health care type facilities.

HUD FUNDING HOME INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIPS PROGRAM, ELIGIBility – LINK: 
https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/comm_planning/affordablehousing/programs/home/ 
States are automatically eligible for HOME funds and receive either their formula allocation or $3 million, whichever is greater. Local jurisdictions eligible for at least $500,000 under the formula ($335,000 in years when Congress appropriates less than $1.5 billion for HOME) also can receive an allocation. The formula allocation considers the relative inadequacy of each jurisdiction's housing supply, its incidence of poverty, its fiscal distress, and other factors.

Communities that do not qualify for an individual allocation under the formula can join with one or more neighboring localities in a legally binding consortium whose members' combined allocation would meet the threshold for direct funding. Other localities may participate in HOME by applying for program funds made available by their State. Congress sets aside a pool of funding for distribution to insular areas, equivalent to the greater of $750,000 or 0.2 percent of appropriated funds.

Shortly after HOME funds become available each year, HUD informs eligible jurisdictions of the amounts earmarked for them. Participating jurisdictions must have a current and approved Consolidated Plan, which will include an action plan that describes how the jurisdiction will use its HOME funds. A newly eligible jurisdiction also must formally notify HUD of its intent to participate in the program.
