$142 Million in Housing Recovery Act Spending, by Oregon County.

I have created a table HERE which shows the distribution of $142 million in RECOVERY act Housing spending by Oregon counties FY 2008-FY 2010 (through June).  More than 1,000 transactions are covered ; all forms of assistance - contracts, grants, direct payments, etc.- are included.

A summary view of this Oregon data from is HERE; it shows OHCS receiving largest amount of this funding at $65+ million.

  • Since search is focused on ARRA funding this search does NOT include $88 Million in Oregon Hardest Hit Funding OR Oregon NSP 1 funding of $19.6 million.(Combined, that's $107.5 million NOT included in this report, and of course the Hardest Hit funding has yet to be obligated).
  • 48% of Recovery Act spending flowed through Marion County, the seat of state government. Unfortunately while we know those dollars are spent throughout the state, the data set I used does not include a place of performance county data element.
  • HUD spending accounted for 67% of all Recovery Act Housing spending, with Department of Energy accounting for another 17% (primarily for Weatherization spending).
