Equity and Opportunity Reports

Affordable Housing Resident Survey Findings and Recommendations

In 2013, the Lane Livability Consortium (LLC) initiated an assessment of low-income residents of subsidized and affordable rental housing developments within Eugene and Springfield, in partnership with St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County (SVDP), Metropolitan Affordable Housing Corporation (Metro), the Housing and Community Services Agency of Lane County (HACSA), the City of Eugene, and the City of Springfield. The purpose of this assessment is to solicit resident input to identify and analyze the issues of equity, access, and opportunity within the region and to consider how the findings could inform agency plans, policies, and major investments. Funding for this effort was provided by the Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
