Homes for Good collaborated with Lane County to develop The Nel, a new, 45 unit permanent supportive housing apartment community at 11th and Charnelton Street in Eugene, Oregon.
This partnership identifies, engages, and houses people experiencing homelessness from Lane County’s Coordinated Entry Central Wait List. The Central Wait List is a prioritized by-name list of households needing housing, ranked by those most in need based on various criteria. Lane County currently prioritizes chronically homeless households for all permanent supportive housing.
Homes for Good was awarded funding by Oregon Housing and Community Services for 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credits in July 2020. Additional funding for The Nel includes City of Eugene HOME Funds, SDC Waivers, capital support from Pacific Source, and other public and private funds. Project Based Vouchers have been awarded for rental subsidy of all units at The Nel. Lane County will secure services funding. Homes for Good is also working with Lane County to develop the supportive services program with Laurel Hill Center, the supportive services provider. Construction began in May 2021 with completion in July 2022. The Nel started welcoming residents in August 2022. The Nel provides housing and supportive services for 45 people experiencing chronic homelessness.
