The planning and regulatory environment for the development of housing is strongly influenced by the Oregon Statewide Planning Goals and Guidelines established in 1973. Specifically, Statewide Planning Goal 10 requires jurisdictions within regional Urban Growth Boundaries (UGB) to meet population housing needs at prices reflective of Oregonian household budgets, allow for flexibility in housing type and location, and encourage density in housing development.

A variety of programs using federal, state, and local funds strive to provide for the housing needs of low and moderate-income residents. These efforts are partially captured through the Eugene-Springfield Consolidated Plan and the Eugene-Springfield Fair Housing Plan. The primary purpose of the Consolidated Plan is to set goals for the use of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnership Program funds (HOME), and other funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Over time, these entities have worked together to develop affordable rental and home ownership units, provide rent and home buyer assistance, and address the overall condition of low-income neighborhoods.
