The OHCS budget bill (HB 5015) shows a proposed General Fund biennium allocation of $7,760,573.
In the legislatively approved budget for FY 2011-2013 the OHCS General Fund biennium allocation was $10,018,855, with 22% of that allocated to non housing uses (food programs), leaving $7,845,788 for 3 housing programs (that serve the lowest income Oregonians):
- Statewide Homeless Assistance Program
- Emergency Housing Assistance Program
- Low-income rental assistance program
