Financial and Budgetary Impacts

The source of funding for this IGA is federal entitlement funds from the HUD HOME Program.  Although this IGA does not generate nor reduce future revenue, it does allow Consortium partners to maximize HUD’s HOME entitlement dollars benefiting the City.

Community Impacts and Community Involvement

HOME funds are provided to the City of Gresham from an allocation of federal entitlement funding provided to the Portland HOME Consortium, which includes the City of Portland.  The amount of the Gresham share of funds is determined by a pre-established formula based on the number of households in poverty.  The activities and priorities established for these funds are developed by the Gresham City Council.  The Portland Housing Bureau is acting as a pass-through agency to provide these funds to Gresham.

100% Renewable Goal

This action provides for the City of Gresham to receive HOME funds per the Portland HOME Consortium thus does not fall under the City’s goal of meeting 100 percent renewable energy.
