Purpose and Objectives


OAR chapter 461, division 191, is promulgated to accomplish the general purpose of ORS 458.505 (Community action agency network as delivery system for federal antipoverty programs) to 458.545 (Task force powers and duties), specifically ORS 458.525 (Duties of Oregon Housing Stability Council in coordinating and monitoring homelessness relief efforts) to 458.530 (Policy on hunger), which designates Oregon Housing and Community Services Department as the lead agency to coordinate state efforts in meeting the problem of hunger that operates through a network of local service-provider agencies. The department has designated the Oregon Food Bank as the agency responsible for administering the Emergency Food Assistance Program in Oregon within OAR chapter 461, division 191. The program’s objective is to provide lower-income households with food for home and congregate meal use. The Department believes that receiving USDA foods will not create any additional barriers between clients and their need for food than is stated in statute.
