Oregon Housing and Community Services Department provides leadership and oversight to the Oregon IDA Initiative. The Oregon Department of Revenue oversees the tax credit aspects of the program for the state.
The Initiative is managed by Neighborhood Partnerships, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Neighborhood Partnerships works directly with contributors and accepts all donations on behalf of the Initiative. Contributions are eligible for an Oregon IDA Tax Credit.
Neighborhood Partnerships allocates funds statewide to a network of Initiative Partners, who then work in a variety of ways with dozens of other non-profit and tribal organizational partners to bring the IDA Initiative into all corners of the state.
Ten Fiduciary Organizations (FOs) work directly with the Oregon IDA Initiative and Neighborhood Partnerships to bring IDAs to communities across Oregon.
