Meeting Materials

About the Action Plan and the Income Limits

The Portland Consortium includes the City of Gresham, the City of Portland, and Multnomah County. An approved five-year Consolidated Plan and annual Action Plans are requirements to receive federal entitlement funding from HUD for the four affordable housing and community development programs: CDBG, HOME, HOPWA, and ESG. In Fall 2021, HUD approved the Consortium’s five-year Consolidated Plan (FY 2021-25) and the first Action Plan of the cycle.

The third Action Plan for this 5-year cycle for the City of Portland details the levels of funding available for the aforementioned programs for the upcoming fiscal year with project-specific allocations and goals.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) sets income limits that determine eligibility for assisted housing programs. HUD develops income limits based on Median Family Income estimates and Fair Market Rent area definitions for each metropolitan area, parts of some metropolitan areas, and each nonmetropolitan county. Portland-specific income and rent limits applicable to area affordable housing programs are based on HUD calculations for the Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, OR-WA MSA.
