Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) is Oregon’s housing finance agency providing financial and program support to create and preserve opportunities for quality, affordable housing for Oregonians of lower and moderate income.
OHCS administers programs that provide housing stabilization—from preventing and ending homelessness and assisting with utilities to keep someone stable, to financing multifamily affordable housing and encouraging home ownership. It delivers these programs primarily through grants, contracts and loan agreements with local partners and community-based providers and has limited direct contact with low-income beneficiaries. OHCS’s sources of funds are varied and include federal and state resources with complex regulatory compliance requirements. Stewardship, compliance monitoring and asset management are all critical roles for OHCS.
