The Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) announces the release of two solicitations:
- Winter 2017 Affordable Housing Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA)
- Winter 2017 Affordable Housing Preservation Request for Interest (RFI)
The NOFA, RFI, and all associated information can be found online at www.portlandoregon.gov/phb/Winter17
Winter 2017 Affordable Housing NOFA
The NOFA is making available the following Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area (ICURA) resources:
- $4,000,000 for affordable multifamily rental housing development or acquisition and rehabilitation
- $9,000,000 for affordable homeownership development
- PHB-owned site at 5020 N. Interstate Ave.
Of the $9M available for homeownership, up to $5M is available to redevelop the PHB-owned site at 5020 N. Interstate Ave, and whatever amount is awarded must be used for this purpose. The remaining $4M is available for homeownership development elsewhere in the ICURA. A map of the ICURA boundaries can be found here.
A mandatory information session for those considering submitting a proposal for the NOFA ONLY will be held:
Thursday February 2, 2017
Noon – 1:30 PM
Portland Housing Bureau offices
421 SW 6th Ave., Suite 500
