Housing and Community Development Planning
Every 5 years, the Cities of Eugene and Springfield identify priority housing and community development needs, goals and strategies. The Consolidated Plan provides the basis for two grant programs allocated by the US Congress: Community Development Block Grants and HOME Investment Partnerships Program. Cogito worked with City of Eugene and Springfield staff to develop imagery for the public outreach and organized an Open House attended by 150 community members. A few years later, Cogito lead a shorter process to allocate HOME funds for the American Rescue Plan, a federally funded program to manage the impacts of covid.
