Funding from Oregon Housing and Community Services will soon bring an affordable housing project to Madras. The new development, named City View, will go up in Eastern Madras, near City View St. and the Yarrow neighborhood.

The project comes as part of the OHCS Lift grant program, which is a 20-year forgivable no-interest loans for developers creating permanent affordable housing. The Madras project also benefits from a supplemental grant to further offset funding for the project. This project, developed by Woodhaven Community Housing, is one of 34 new development projects that received this funding from the state.
