In May 2020, Metro voters passed the Supportive Housing Services measure (Measure 26-210). The measure will raise money for supportive housing services for people experiencing homelessness or at risk of experiencing homelessness.
Clackamas County will receive 21.33% of the total revenue generated to provide Supportive Housing Services such as:
- rent assistance
- mental health
- addiction and recovery services
- employment assistance
- peers support
Project Updates/Next Steps
On July 28, 2021, the Housing Authority of Clackamas County hosted a listening session with the Clackamas County provider community. We received extensive feedback from providers and had a productive conversation on the status and future of the Supportive Housing Services program.
Request for Proposals (RFP)
The Housing Authority of Clackamas County will accept proposals for funding between August 5 and August 25, 2021. Points will be awarded to applicants who center racial equity and incorporate culturally responsive practices into their service delivery model.
Our year-one approved budget of $10M is much smaller than was originally expected. Several of you have contacted Clackamas County staff to share that the application you submitted does not correlate with current funding levels and you would appreciate the opportunity to re-apply based on current funding realities. To ensure all interested parties have the opportunity to re-apply we have made the decision to terminate the existing RFP.
Request for Proposals (RFP)
We will accept proposals for funding between April 16 and May 17, 2021. Applicants must center racial equity and incorporate culturally responsive practices into their service delivery model.
