OAR 813-130-0000
Purpose and Objectives

OAR chapter 813, division 130, is promulgated to carry out the provisions of the HELP Program. The department receives HELP funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under Section 1012 of the Steward B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act (“the McKinney Act”) of 1988. The HELP program is funded by monies realized from the HUD-authorized refunding of existing bonds issued by the department, the proceeds of which were originally used to finance housing projects, pursuant to an agreement between the department and HUD under HUD’s Financing Adjustment Factor (FAF) program. Under the FAF program, HUD shares such monies realized from these refundings on an equal basis with bond issuers such as the department, and attaches certain restrictions and requirements upon the use of funds realized from such refunding. The HELP program’s purpose is to provide financial assistance for the construction, acquisition and/or rehabilitation of multifamily rental housing for individuals and families of very low income in order to expand the supply of affordable, decent, safe and sanitary housing in Oregon. Additional program policies and instructions are outlined in the HELP Program Policies and Guidelines Manual dated June 21, 2013 (the “HELP Manual” or “Manual”), incorporated herein by reference. The Manual may be accessed online on the department’s website.
