The Federal Funding Oversight Committee (FFOC) is an inter-jurisdictional committee made up of six public members, two appointed by each jurisdiction in the Consortium (City of Portland, City of Gresham, and Multnomah County). In making appointments, jurisdictions are encouraged to take into account the income, racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the jurisdiction. FFOC members are expected to provide a balanced, citizen-based perspective on the matters delegated to it.
The role of the FFOC shall be to:
- Hold public hearings as required by The Consolidated Plan;
- Recommend the allocation of federal housing and community development formula funds to the jurisdictions in the Consortium;
- Recommend the allocation of federal funds to address homelessness pursuant to the Continuum of Care to the jurisdictions in the Consortium.
The Consolidated Plan's Citizen Participation Plan outlines the requirements of citizen participation, including information regarding the Federal Funding Oversight Committee, as well as each jurisdiction's public involvement opportunities. The Citizen Participation Plan is found online: www.portlandonline.com/phb/cpp.
