On Friday, the Treasury released overdue ERA spending and household assisted data for November.
Reallocated Funds: Oregon Grantees Get $1.3 Million , a Tiny Fraction of the $248M that Had been Requested.
The release also included data on the reallocation of $1 billion in ERA funds. Most of those funds were transferred within states, but Oregon grantees appear to have received a total of $1.3 million in reallocated funds:This is FAR less than the $248+ million that had been requested by Oregon grantees.
Observations on the spending data for November.
The YTD ERA 1 ratio of assistance spending to households was
- 59% nationwide.
- 69% statewide in Oregon
- 77% for Oregon Housing and Community Services.
- 46% for Oregon LOCAL ERA grant recipients (primarily because ratios in the City of Portland, Marion county, and Washington county were all less than 50%. Multnomah county stands out at a reported 94% ratio).
In November the number of unique households assisted in by ERA 1 was
- 378,217 nationwide.
- 8,178 in Oregon.
- 4,432 for Oregon Housing and Community Services.
- 3,746 for Oregon LOCAL ERA 1 grant recipients.
