Corvallis Housing First received just under $2.5 million to purchase the (Budget Inn) at 1480 SW Third St. The Corvallis grant is part of Project Turnkey, an initiative that is using $65 million in legislative appropriations for acquiring motels and hotels to house the homeless, those at risk of homelessness and those displaced by last fall’s wildfires.
The Community Services Consortium has awarded $2.5 million to a range of groups in recent months. CSC also received $3.5 million in federal CARES Act funding for emergency rental assistance, but those funds were used for a wider client base than just the homeless.
