Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) and CSH are excited to announce Oregon’s second Supportive Housing Institute (the “Institute). The 2020-2021 Institute will help supportive housing partners learn how to navigate the complex process of developing housing with support services and reduce the time it takes to obtain funding for supportive housing by improving the planning and development process.
The Institute will have a primary focus of building the capacity of both new and experienced housing developers and service providers to serve high needs population throughout Oregon.
The CSH Institute has a strong record of accomplishment across the country, with graduates experiencing an 80% success rate in bringing projects into operation. The Institute will provide targeted training, technical assistance and pre-development financing (subject to availability) to both new and experienced development teams. Teams receive intensive training over 5-months including individualized technical assistance and support to assist in planning quality projects. CSH Oregon-based and national subject matter experts in partnership with local experts will provide insight on coordinating services and property management, building a race equity culture, financing, funding and trauma-informed design.
The 2020-2021 Institute is made possible by OHCS. Thanks to the support of OHCS and their commitment to supportive housing, the Institute is offered free of charge to participants.
