The Regional Rural Revitalization Strategies Consortium (R3) has approved funding for the Oregon iSector to be a part of its technical assistance team. R3 will pay $350,000 over the balance of the biennium.

iSector will work with R3 to provide on-the-ground direct technical assistance and connection across sectors to help rural communities statewide address their local housing needs. We will create an online Housing Readiness Assessment Dashboard to identify and track development opportunities, and develop strategies for housing production. We will coordinate with state agencies regarding the unique needs of rural communities in an effort to ensure that future plans support those needs. We will also work with employers and jurisdictions to develop public-private partnerships for co-investment in housing projects.
