HR Affordable Housing Development Not Selected For State Funding

The proposed affordable housing development in Hood River on the Morrison Park property did not receive funding from Oregon Housing and Community Services in its latest round of funding awards this week.  Columbia Cascade Housing Corporation had made a proposal to receive funding through the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit and HOME awards that leverage local, state, and private investments.  In spite of not being selected, CCHC Board President Scott Clements says they feel they will be in a better position to apply for the next round of funding, expected to be at the beginning of 2019.  The Hood River City Council rezoned the park property, known as tax lot 700, in June 2017 to develop it for affordable housing.
