OHCS has several ways to support housing developers with affordable housing preservation projects. There are different ways and funding programs that OHCS assists developers with to preserve affordable housing. For example, one preservation opportunity may include extending the affordability of developments with expiring program restrictions, such as in the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program.
Below you will find definitions, program descriptions, and resources to help developers preserve affordable housing in Oregon.
Preservation: means any Project with at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the units having existing federal Project-Based Rental Assistance Contract; and
a) the HUD Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance Contract is expiring within seven (7) years of the date of the OHCS NOFA application; or
b) the USDA Rural Development direct mortgage is maturing within seven (7) years of the date of the OHCS NOFA application; or
c) the USDA Rural Development project has a pending prepayment request; or
(Note, USDA Rural Development projects with a maturing mortgage within 3 years of the date of
the OHCS NOFA application, or where the Owner’s prepayment request has been approved, will be prioritized.)
d) the USDA Rural Development project’s restrictive use covenants have expired; or
e) Projects with Public Housing Units undergoing a preservation transaction involving a comprehensive recapitalization, including those converting to HUD Section 8 projects under the HUD Rental
Assistance Demonstration or projects under the HUD Section 18 Demolition and Disposition Programs.
The HUD 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) program allows persons with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community by subsidizing rental housing opportunities which provide access to appropriate supportive services.
