The City of Tigard is home to people of all ages and incomes and is working hard to meet the housing needs of all its residents. This project will help keep seniors in our community who are facing rising rents and increased living costs.

Project
The proposed project is located on a site owned by the City of Tigard at 8815 SW O’Mara Street alongside the Tigard Senior Center and Meals on Wheels, and close to the Fanno Creek Trail, Tigard Public Library,Downtown Tigard and several bus lines. The project is anticipated to be a four-story building with 50-60 one-bedroom units, and would house seniors 62 and older, including seniors getting by on Supplemental Security Income or Social Security Disability (often less than $16,000 per year). Additionally, the project will prioritize housing for veterans and seniors with disabilities.

Funding
In September 2020, Washington County awarded $6,270,000 in METRO Housing Bond funds to the Senior Housing Alongside the Senior Center project. Project Based Vouchers were also awarded assuring that 23 units' tenants pay no more than 30% of their income in rent. This is incredible news and means that Northwest Housing Alternatives (NHA) can proceed with the design of this project in cooperation with the community.

Housing Partner
Northwest Housing Alternatives (NHA) will develop the project. A non-profit affordable housing developer, NHA currently operates 16 affordable senior housing properties serving more than 900 seniors around the state of Oregon. Each NHA property is designed to help families and older adults lead healthy and stable lives.
