Oregon Housing and Community Services is placing a greater emphasis on strategic planning and the way we invest our resources. Over the past several years we have been restructuring, refocusing and re-imagining our agency. Our work has led to an increased emphasis on data, research and customer service. We are carrying that effort forward with the development of the Statewide ​Housing Plan.

The plan will clearly articulate the extent of Oregon’s housing problem and what can be done to address it. OHCS has committed to the Housing Stability Council and our stakeholders that the plan will be responsive to the needs of the state, delivered to the legislature and include elements of our equity agenda. To accomplish this task OHCS has hired EcoNorthwest to help deliver this important body of work.​
